I assume you mean push or pull off the top? If so, you need MUCH more airspeed for this than to hammerhead off the top. In fact you can hammerhead from 0 airspeed but to fly off the top you probably need 30mph minimum probably 50mph or more with a metal prop. In the T for example, if you pull to vertical and wait to about 60mph and try to push off the top, you will 'just' run out of aileron. I assume the B with metal prop can be flown off the top a bit slower because it is a larger aircraft and that the composite propped B can go even slower still. You may find that you can fly off the top inverted at a lower speed than pushing to upright.

Jerry: If you are totally spin safe, disregard this. If not, heed the earlier advice to get the competent training. In our Acroduster Too, counter torque roll controls held into the tailslide can net you a very exciting accelerated inverted spin mode that requires special urging to exit!
