    Hi everyone,

    We took the Taifun out this afternoon and did a stall series in it. Odd thing - the stall break came at about 52 kts indicated, which is
    way higher than the book number. That happened at every flap setting except 30 degrees, when the break came at 42 kts indicated, which is a
    little high but not way off.

    Does anyone else know what their ASI reads at the stall break? are these high readings normal (i.e., lot of position error in the system), or should I get ready to chase a bug in the pitot system?
