Immanuel Doebrich New plane and 36 kts headwind. I was struggeling with the cat after reaching cruising altitude. It took some minutes to work things out. And unfortunately I was not aware that this thing set flaps by itself while flying after getting to slow. After some struggle I decided to go down to 10.00ft (although max altitude for the cat is something around 15.000ft.) what worked fine in the end. Second problem I have since the computer is working again that all windows open (no matter if firefox or smartCARS or whatelse suddenly minimize after some seconds. And so it came that when I startet to write this message during flight I typed the "g" in the word "things" above when the smartcars window minimized and the Cat was lowering the gear. I hit "G" directly again so it did not came down more than half. Sorry for that. pls. don`t reject as I really tried hard for a happy end of this flight For the second leg with this beast I`m warned... .-)
