Fly the Ball
Really good write up, and thorough. One small item that I expected to see but didn’t:

Don’t trim in the turn. Or at least, no more than a couple clicks but better to leave it alone than chase it. Set on-speed on downwind and trust it. I brief others to not trim in the turn, but actually used two clicks rolling in, and two clicks rolling out to compensate for the added knots.

Also, one correction. When referencing VSI in the groove, I think you got the correction backwards.
>700 = add a little power
<700 = ease a little off

Otherwise, great job.

I never trimmed in turns and never taught that, nor did I ever hear it recommended. No need if squared away downwind. There is no feel in the sim, and right now, due to damping, the AOA is more difficult to lock in than in reality. That should change soon along with a few other landing config tweaks.

I flew slightly slow around the turn.

I'll check the VSI reference.

Edit: no, it's correct, but could have been stated better "as greater than and lesser than". It references absolute baseline ROD.

I'll change it when a new build comes out and some of the FF numbers change.

Are you currently flying the release version?

Wow, thank you so much! You are an incredible wealth of information and add so much to the Tomcat experience in DCS.

I will be reading this over and over in addition to everything else you say.

I got spoiled by the Hornet and need to really learn how to fly again.

This warms my heart. Hornets are for kids.

I guess you’re referencing viewing the needle position from baseline? i.e., if the needle is above 700fpm? I can see what you’re saying from that perspective, but if it’s in terms of actual ROD I’m not quite following. Approaching the start, I got call outs from the backseat for VVI, so I referenced his callouts, not the actual VSI.

No, I won’t get to fly it for some time yet.
