yeah.. I had in mind that delay in spool up of the turbine.. so I let it pickup some speed and then pull up..
I found the runway pretty easily (thanks to the Gods of EDFs) as you can see on the first pass with landing gear down..
the first attempt though I came pretty fast so I had to abort..
on the second one I left the elevator up to neutral position and it came down too fast (I thought it was just going to float down..) even from 1 feet above the ground so it kind of springed up .. so again I did what I told you.. let it pick up speed and pulled up.. the third one was just fine.. nice landing.. still a bit fast landing but I dont' know the plane well enough to slow it down as much as it can.
as I said.. if the plane is on the runway in 1 piece.. then it's a perfect landing..
