Default Large Bae Hawk / XXL Viper Flight Characteristics

Someone who has flown a large Bae Hawk or XXL Viper could tell me the flight characteristics of each one.

I have been told that the Bae Hawk is a flying complex plane.

I would greatly appreciate your comments

Regards

The big Vipers have more energy than the big Hawks. You have to use more power to fly constant speed on the big Hawk, but both are really easy to fly, the trailing link gear on the Hawk is more forgiving on grass or heavier touchdowns. What are you looking for?

If you can fly jets neither will cause you any issues.

On the Hawk just make sure the ailerons are minimum level at neutral (not drooped down)

A sharper wing drop. But these larger jets are travelling so slowly at that point, it's not like the smaller heavily loaded jets.
