  Measure the difference in control sensitivity of a Pitts with and without
spades........
To save you the trouble:
the one is like driving a bus and the other like a Porsche with power
steering!
I think he needs them.
If he can't land the thing without damaging the spades then maybe a Cessna
172 could solve that!

Just some more thoughts to consider.
