Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 5

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera, Part 5 ANN E-I-C Note: Slowly… but… surely… the flight test series progresses… to the point where we are nearly finished. Let’s look at low-speed handling and landing manners before we get ready for the final report card, in Part Six.

On to slow flight! I was really curious about this regime… as I had seen some amazing video of an IO-390 powered Panthera doing well in this regard, including aggressive multi-turn spins with all seats inhabited!
