Re: Flying in Google Earth

I'm impressed. I'm not sure if GE updates fast enough to run smooth for visual flying, but in many cases it could be used nicely with homebuilt simulators using separate instruments. It could save people a lot of work on scenery building just for local training purposes. Only problem would be that t...

Re: The trouble with AATs [Dane Dickinson, from Soaring NZ]

Look at high jump, or weightlifting where the competitor has to estimate what he can achieve. Take the easy route, you'll get some points for sure.

Re: Unrecoverable spins?

I also find that the autorudder will prevent getting into a spin, but might disable you from getting out of it. With autorudder you will not have full rudder authority, which could make it a bit difficult to get it out. But what Jon allready said: full water it seems a lot harder to get it out of a ...
