This time I ignored the ADI and just kept an eye on ground speed and vertical speed. Lots of collective adjustments as I kept the vertical speed around zero while slowing down. I think I was chasing the DOP lines on the ADI. Ignoring it completely seemed to work for me.

@solidGad
... interesting, will try anything!

I don't know if you're aware but if you set the NADIR to VS DER, your ground speed is shown on the top line of the display and this is quite useful

@solidGad

... a challenge (for sure)... a few hours last night - got soooo close a few times but not the full monty

Which other things have you got switched on?

Thinking of auto-pilot and mode, magnetic brake?

... determined to beat it!

i seem to have it down pretty good now.

i have everything switched on that i normally would. nothing off anyways. i pretty much ignore everything but the vertical speed. last night as i was closing to within range of the tanks i was hunting, i put it into autohover on the first try. just keep the vertical speed at or around zero when you are slowing down.
