It just doesn’t seem to make sense unless this is a new/different AOA sensor design, with a design flaw.

its not the sensor - its the fubar software and dependance on a single sensor which gets switched from side to side dependant on aircraft power cycles, but which can without any comparison or error checking drive a horizontal stabilizer !
