These seem OK for me:
blueplane.engine_strength 5
blueplane.mass 1
blueplane.turn_amount 0.012
blueplane.air_turnrate 0.00005
blueplane.air_isotropic 0.00005
blueplane.air_normal 0.004

Btw. I still can't do an Immelman because I can't turn the plane
while it drops on it's tail.  IMHO the plane should be a bit
like a boat, i.e. the faster you go in relation to the air/stream,
more the effect plane flaps should have.  Possible a bit less
when dropping backwards because planes are aerodynamically
designed to go forward :-), but at least turning should still have
*some* effect when the plane is going (dropping) backwards...
