    Alright, as promised the "Network Bandwidth vs. Volcanism" Test : Test Result in Glide Phase at Altitude : Negative, no Traffic spike Test Result in normal Space : (Second 34 : the moment of Network Traffic spike) (Second 50 : Scanner Detection of POI)

    Update : The Alliance/Confederacy issue has been resolved :) Now the only issue remaining is the very old one : System Maps of former Federation Systems still state "Allegiance : Federation" Affected Systems : Chaualkyrja COL 285 Sector EN-W B17-1 HIP 60501

    Yes, flipping the Ship upside down doesn't do anything to the Scanner. Still works exactly the same. I always do it to get a good view onto the Ground and I work to keep both the Scanner and the Ground in view. (the only thing one shouldn't do is to exceed ~45 deg Pitch or Bank angle, that begins to severely distort the Scanner image... just park over any Standard POI and rotate/pitch the Ship and observe Scanner display to see the effect) Even at high speeds, one can take 2-3 seconds looking left or right at the periphery. Works like a classic Instrument cross-check in aviation. Although I never could work out the exact reason, many faster (usually smaller) Ships maintain their peak Velocity when toggling FA off over a Planet when any sinkrate is maintained. Others (AspS/AspX/Keelback/DBX etc.) don't and require near-permanent Afterburning instead. Only under high-G and/or a very distinct sinkrate will these Ships stay fast FA off. It's another reason I prefer it, FA off, kick A/B and just ensure...

    Unsure yet... by the time it triggers - if I don't miss it which is incredibly easy - I'm basically already there and either visually see it or have the tiny Blue Dot. I do keep it running (still testing) for the case of it being still outside 10km Scanner Range AND being out of view. Basically an "unlucky miss" case. I plan to do more extended tests with it on known sites after I return home. For the time being, it's not a "magic detector", my ~6 hours buzzing 5 different Planets & Moons yesterday without finding anything speaks for itself :S (was cursed yesterday... even spent 2hrs very late just on a 300km tiny potato... no dice. Nothing. Only 20km POI Mineral rocks to add insult to injury.) For the time being, the sheer speed of my modded Imperial Courier is by far my best utility. For me, absolutely nothing beats being able to sustain 650-700m/sec flying inverted FA off and following Canyons.
