    I was using Pigpens description. Didnt really know the maneuver had a name, just thought my dad
    was cool. He could make that Stinson dance on the end of a pin in a 30kt XW if he wanted to.
    LOL

    My dad would do those type of 1 point take offs and landings in his Stinson 10A. People would
    stand outside the FBO and watch. Roll from one wheel to the other, back and forth and be
    straight as an ar...

    I've done 3 point take off, tail up take off and tail low take off in my Pitts S-2E. The tail
    low seems to work best. It just flies right off.

    I'd jump on it if I didnt already have a 2E ;)

    Thinking about it, what would the advantage be to specify to Craig a higher RPM such as 3200
    rather than 3000 be. Would the gain if any be noticeable/worth it? It probably would lower TBO?

    OK. Next question. Since the Catto is lighter, how much did this affet your W/B? What did you
    do to correct it if any?

    WOW!I'm going to ask my friend that has flown it a few times if he snuck in a quart.Even if he
    has, it still seems I'm doing pretty goodThis site is a great resource.Thanks!

    OK. You have pretty much what I have. I also told them 3000 RPM. Just wanted to make sure I
    wasnt off. Thanks!

    Those that have a Catto 3 blade prop on your IO360 Pitts S2, what did you tell the company you
    wanted as RPM's?
