Dear Pitts Gurus: I've seen talk of an "H" tube on Pitts aircraft that often needs attention. What part of the aircraft is this and what do I need to look out for as I shop for a Pitts S-1S regarding this "H" tube? Also what do I look out for regarding the control stick. I have seen mention of a requirement to check for cracks and a fix for this. Thanks again! Paul Klusman P.S. Thanks again for all the folks who responded to my "Pitts groundloop damage" question. I looked at the plane in question tonight and I'll probably not buy it. I think the plane is in good shape but not quite as good cosmetically as I'd like.
