ISTR there was a lot of obfuscation from Bell and they tried to blame pilot error rather than acknowledge the AFCS had a problem.

Might be a better procedure to keep one Technical Crewman onboard to take the figures - doesn't even need to be in the cockpit as the pilot could say the numbers over the ICS?

This is exactly what we do with our 412 EPi's. A quick snap shot of the screen with the cell phone is another method if alone in the cockpit.
