    Wink Turn rate

    Hi,
    To have a correct turn rate they say you have to take speed divide by 10 and add 7.
    This can give figures like 24 for example. How can you achieve this with the little plane banking between 0 - 45. Can we imagine a digital display from - 50 to +50 which would be more precise. Maybe this exists I don't know.

    Any suggestion welcome

    Re: Turn rate

    Hi Gerry, its just a matter to know your cockpit,
    When banking at a certain degree you have to make notice the line of the Horizon and where that line will cross your cockpit, it could be a instrument or a radio even a crack in the glareshield, a windowcurve or any other place.
    Also a maximum angle has to be in relation to your airspeed if you bank 45 degrees at 70 knots you get a stall or sideslip.
    The safest way is keeping a eye on the turncoordinater
