Have  you ever seen  an outside loop done by a Pitts S2B at the Vg
stated max. -3G   at  154mph.?  I'll wager that it would never grade above a 6 


Ty replies:

You should buy a Decathlon, it's stronger (yea right).  According to the 
limits you can do an outside loop with -5g'z in the green arc at 160 Mph.  I 
don't understand why the G limits on a S2B are +6 and -3.  At least the S2C 
is technically as strong as a Decathlon with +6 -5.
