    ...Hehe, Vince thats something else that was discussed beofre, it wasnt an AI/horizon, it was a turn/slip and bank indicator thingamajob (no pitch information)

    either way, not really worth fitting to a flex imo, the pod being decoupled from the wing.......but as you say, we've been here before (a couple of times)

    p.s, i've no idea why my post is in large text, im not doing a Peter, honest guv

    Just to add another aspect, wouldn't it be great to have a wing leveller in a three axis machine, inadvertently fly into IMC, flick the switch until your clear Sorted !!

    Oddly - when discussing similar with my FI - he thought that maybe because I spent quite a bit of time on the simulator I'd become a little to dependant on instruments and not enough looking out the windows.

    Something I think I'll have to change on a 3axis

    Nice one Andy. 11 pages of debate... now, how to merge the threads... a challenge me thinks...

    Not such a challenge it seems, threads merged. This forum software really is much better than me

    I also should have been able to find it, because, it held so much useful info for newbies I made it sticky at the time...

    No worries, Vince. Glad I asked the question, though, it's been a real eye opener. Thanks for merging it in to a sticky, it's the sort of info that could make a person think twice about putting themselves in a dodgy situation.
    To summarise, if I may: flying in IMC without the right kit and training is akin to jumping in to the lion enclosure at London Zoo and trying to make friends with the residents i.e. you might get lucky and live to tell the tale but chances are you won't

    Cheers,
    Justin

    P.S. Don't forget to give me a call re my factory lights.
