VOR / ILS logic?

I just finished flying the "F" model attempting VOR tracking and two ILS approaches. *The logic programed into the unit seems all messed up to me. At times the VOR head would show 30 degrees and the radial being tracked was 155 degrees. During two ILS approaches the aircraft was always positioned to...

Re: Handling Issues

Steve: Take the Dog up and stall it with full flaps and about 1700rpm...like you were on a stol app. You should find it stall out at about 50-55 kts. Not sure about this anymore.

Thank you,

Jerry A.

The BD is over powered with 213hp, but more importantly, it is nose heavy with that old O-470 in it...esp...
