X plane 11 : Airfoillabs Cessna 172 : Genoa Sestri LIMJ Landing

I dedicated a few days to practising landing the Cessna 172. I have previously practised landing the stock 172, so the behaviour of the sim surprised me. I wasn't expecting the amount of movement in pitch and roll. That made landings particularly challenging.

I now believe a bug of some kind was introduced after a recent sim crash. X Plane 11 appears to be quite vulnerable to "collateral damage" when it has an issue. A re-install of the Airfoilabs Cessna 172 seems to have fixed it, and the aircraft is much more manageable in calm conditions.

This approach and landing was recorded before the fix. But even so I'm quite content with it.
