Not sure what all is in play here but having flown many hours in Cirrus, Grumman, a smattering of other planes, and now a handful in the Comanche, I am finding the Comanche is far more violent in turbulence and Gusts to the point that I am going back with an instructor on the next S#!tty day because I am quite uncomfortable. Up high in smooth air, the PA-24 is amazing. I love it. Down low in thermals and gusts, it flies like a cube and I dislike it. Yesterday it was 12G19 which isn't that bad (for me) The drops, wing dips, lifts, etc that go along with that seem significantly more dramatic in this plane than any other plane I can recall. I had a good cross wind yesterday and I have never had a plane drift as much as this one. Once I was wheels up, the tendency for the plane to "slide" downwind is Impressive. Normal thermal type bumps seem far more violent and coming in on final (100 kts, full flaps), its getting tossed around morose than I have noticed in other planes. Not that the "why" really matters. It is what it is and I have to get used to it but I would have guessed being bigger and heavier, this plane would be far less impacted by this stuff. I do believe the slower roll rate is also a portion of it. Roll corrections are much slower. If you have time in this collections of planes, I would be curious to get your take.
