Austin I think the following statement needs to go with this file

"WARNING!!! If you use this spreadsheet for a Pitts S-1S you will need to change the main landing gear arm and the tail wheel arm to fit your aircraft mine is probably different than yours if your main landing gear is off by as little as 1 inch you will get substantially different numbers. WARNING!!!

As always with these things it is up to you to understand and verify what you have before trusting a spread sheet to calculate it for you. It is the flying pilot's responsibility to verify weight and balance prior to flight. "

I'm glad you said that, it got me thinking about my gear being lengthened!
