I've now discovered the spinning is idiosyncratic : if one enters from a straight power off stall, it recovers easily ( in fact it doesn't really spin properly at all ) ; if, however, you enter from a power on climbing turn, the airspeed disappears completely and nothing will get it back, power on, power off , rudder on either direction etc. Strange...

This is the first a/c I've tried to spin, so maybe it's an X-plane vagary

A quick ( I say quick :lol: ) flight from Old Warden to Panshangar at 2000ft yesterday, lead to me falling asleep en route :rofl:
Gawd almighty Chris, not only did you fall asleep but also fell out of it!!!!! :rofl:

Lol, that did make me chuckle Nigel :lol:

My other half was upstairs sorting the washing out and I was sat on the sofa flying. 75kts clearly wasn't enough to keep me engaged and off I drifted! :rofl:
