This is a just in case I need to do it type of post. I have read numerous posts about how to descend properly and I understand the need to avoid Settling with power so now when I descend I am careful to go down slowly but want to be prepared to get down fast. The battery alarm on my phone is very quiet and it is easy to get carried away and not notice the power drop from under 50‰. Am I right in thinking it is good to descend with motion into the direction of the wind ? Gut feeling says that the propwash will be blown away with the wind and the P2V will be going down into undisturbed air. Some people have recommended descending in a box pattern but presumably one of the legs will be with the wind. The second question is how much downward motion to apply on the stick. At the moment I descend in stages - a few seconds of half way between center and bottom - level off and repeat but as I said in the beginning of this post this would not be a feasible proposition in the case of an urgent landing. I repeat, I know this has been discussed many times and I know some people get pi$$ed off by the same posts coming up again & again - but I have read a post which says it is not good to reverse into a tail wind which got me thinking I might be wrong.
