The RIO handles both radios and TACAN. You can tune them via the RIO interface.

Mutley, I seem to recall that Maverick had the same problem - it cooked Goose's goose.

More seriously, there is a thread in the ED Tomcat Forum. The magic answer, in the real aircraft would appear to be to let go of the controls, or, better still, don’t go slow and pull!

Actually, it is not bad practice in many aircraft to just centre the controls and wait. It was standard recovery from a slow, vertical position in the Jet Provost (and the Chipmunk - never tried it in the Hercules,) - just clamp the rudder and stick centrally, and wait until you are pointing downwards, with the speed increasing.

You’re lucky to have such an intelligent back-seater.
