OK, I'm late to the party, but I got 'B' using an E6-B4 whizz wheel. ( I didn't peek at the other responses before hand...)

Logged my first 1.4 in the R66 this morning. Very simple to operate, it seemed to like 72% torque for 115KIAS. The only surprise was how fast rotor RPM comes up in a 180 auto - much quicker than the ...
