Let’s look at low-speed handling and landing manners before we get ready for the final report card, in Part Six. Thanks for sticking with us through all this… it’s been a zoo at ANN HQ (in a good way—BUSY!), but I wanted to make sure this was all presented as expertly as possible… which took more time than I readily had. 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! While the commercial Panthera is NOT recommended for spins, I still got a lot of info, and insight/confidence from seeing that demo. And yes, i lioked what I saw. OK… to do slow flight, y
