    Default My first Archer shot

    I just bought the Archer and decided to take it for a spin around my home airport, and here's my landing.

    My first words when I saw the plane... "WOW!"
    My first words when I flew the plane.... "WOW!"
    My first words when landing it.... "CROSSWIND!!!!!

    It seemed I crabbed too much but when I was landing like this, I had to look at the 10 o'clock position to see where I was going. Is that normal?

    Its normal to fly the approach that way but right before you touchdown you should straighten out. In the real world you'd probably rip the tires up landing sideways:D

    I think that's true for most planes except the 747. The 747 can take up to 45 degrees on landing in a strong crosswind. I think I'm right but am probably going to be proven wrong. *sigh* . I'm depressed today for some reason. Too much work. I'm going to go the the PAI complaint forum and start complaining... AHHH
