Sure, if you like. Check out the README.yasim document for a start, and maybe read through the archives for issues other people have had. The error message you are seeing indicates that the solver runs out of elevator authority before it can get to the approach angle of attack specified in the configuration file. The standard way to fix this involves some combination of: + Increase the elevator authority in its flap definition. + Increase the horizontal stabilizer "effectiveness" + Move the c.g. rearward with ballast. But again: it is unlikely that this model will be maintained in the future. The standard FlightGear 172 is a JSBSim model, and it works quite well. If there is something specific you need from the Skyhawk model, you might best be served by modifying the JSBSim one. And if you want a YASim lightplane, definitely check out the pa28-161. This is very well tuned (by David Megginson, who actually owns such a Cherokee) and works great.
