I was thiniking that if i want to make an airplane to go slower could i use a higher angle of attack during flight thus increasing lift (within the lowest drag envelope of course)? If i am right what settings other than minimum cruise throttle do i need or is possible to adjust? I am asking because i have an airplane (the huge Cessna) that can fly more than safely with 80km/h and have significantly reduced drag but the autopilot gives it a cruising speed of 110km/h even with low throttle (40%) and at 3 degrees wing pitch during flight. I am searching for those last bits that can decrease fuel consumption to a minimum :-D
