Yeah, it doesn't happen all the time. I wish I could come up with a reproducible case for it - there's a good chance that the GS capture was my own fault for setting the FMC wrong or something, but I'm not sure why it didn't start screaming about terrain and sink rate or something, much less callouts.I'm incredibly pleased with the plane otherwise, these are just minor annoyances that I can get around by just grabbing the yoke myself.-stefan
