Hi think108

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK and although I can't say why it happens, my Cirrus SF50 does exactly the same thing i.e. it 'porpoises' at speeds of 240 knots and above, whilst on autopilot.

The only way that I've been able to control it, is to reduce the speed down slightly to around 230 knots and after level flight has been achieved, it maintains it perfectly from that point on.
