The large control deflection might require a gain adjustment. The first F-16 flight was unintentional (and nearly disastrous) due to excessive pitch sensitivity.

Looking forward to flying either of them. T50 looks like a blast. Wouldn't mind closing out my mil career on something a bit more nose rate sporty than the 38. That said, I'm still enjoying flying the old rocket, so I count my blessings. I can always go watch paint dry in the right seat of whatever when I'm old or broken.

They don't expect this program to hit the line until the early 20s, so there's still a ton of flying to be done on the old white rocket. Theyre plenty long in the tooth, and I watch those hydraulic controls like a hawk. There but for the grace of God go I......
