Can't find it again. I commented on it. When I find it, I'll post.

Why didn't they recommend angle of attack indicators?

Cost? Complexity?

A simple buzzer activating a few knots before stall will get your attention, don't need a weird colourful screen.

Plus, recommendations are more likely to be acted upon if they aren't overbearing. Just need to be effective.

But a simple buzzer will not tell you how close you are to critical alfa.

What angle of attack indicator is on a weird colourful screen?

Do you mean this one?

That is what I have in my Cub Clone that I am planning to use for flight training because I personally think it is an awesome teaching tool.

But hey you are entitled to your own preferences I am only expressing mine. :mrgreen:

This subject got me to thinking and I can not recall ever stalling any airplane unintentionally including Beavers.

I have unintentionally stalled the Pitts and the Decathalon a few times while aggressively practising aerobatics but that is something that I suppose is not really unintentional because I was aware that I was at high risk of the thing stalling considering how I was flying it. :mrgreen:
