One more thing: At first, hold the stick with 2 or 3 fingers only. If you use the traditional grip that we men often use for certain private pursuits, you will most certainly overcontrol the airplane. Now you must think I am a troll. aerobatik at att.net wrote: Aerobats, I've taken the plunge. I made an appointment to get lessons in an S2! I'm excited, but concerned. I could sure use some pointers, and some varying opinions on how to accomplish my training with my instructor. I'm not sure how structured his lessons will be. While doing aerobatic training in my SLOWTABRIA, we had very little structure, but hads loads of fun. And I learned a lot. I think the Pitts is going to be a whole new animal. And it's sure going to cost a lot more than flying my Citabria. Any input, tips, recommendations, precautions, information sources, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Matt
