Thanks for your time.
Immediate difference is turn rate and inertia. I agree, on paper it doesn't look like much of a difference. I have both and the FER just "feels" better to me. I also freely admit that it is just that, a feeling, and others may feel differently. Keeping the FER a hidden gem would be fine with me

I like to use my FPE in pve, it rocks. The most likely explanation for my feeling is that my main is a bug driver and the FER provides a very similar feel while flying. Regardless, the FPE is also a fine fine vessel!
