    The stall warning …
    The stall warning is kinda nice in every landing but a landing without the stall warning can also come by nicer that some others with the warning! BTW nice cessna I like the LCD it has, is it yours?

    stall warning? – on …
    stall warning? – on Cessna 172s it works by air flow, like a whistle, rather than an electronic horn or beep or alarm…. on that video clip, it’s a long runway and the first exit was some way along it so I held the aircraft off the runway til the wings were pretty much stalled… the stall warning was screeching as it should!

    Excellent! Thielert …
    Excellent! Thielert has been making inverted V-4 diesels in Europe for Cessnas, Pipers and DiamondStars due to more availability of diesel/jet fuel versus pricier gasoline. An American manufacturer is almost at FAA certification for a similar V4 engine in the USA. BTW…nice LCD display!

Got something to say?
