HI LuigiAround the 55% mark at 1700fpm will keep you close to the pole around 230-235.Overspeeds happen infrequently in the aircraft normally through about 12000' in the real aircraft where the fuel scheduling changes a little causing pole surfers to step over the line.50-500% should keep you safe most of the time at around 1700fpm which will give you a reasnoble 3-1 descent.SeeyaDarren
