    Why is the eclipse that big of a deal anyway?

    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.

    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?
