Re: REFLECTOR: AOA perspective

I'm strickly a low time pilot, < 400 hours; and that is spread out in 13 or 14
different planes, including gliders.  I agree with you.  I think I can tell when
the Velocity is going to stall better than I can with probable any other plane;
but if you accidently stall it on final or a step turn, it is not going to bite
you; and, at least in ours(a 173RG), there is still good control response and
recovery is easy.  As a matter of fact, the pitch buck probably would't be
recognized as a stall by some non carnard pilots unless you told them.
