I was never in the class that these guy's are and I respect them for their ability. What I did not like doing was sustained high G negative near the ground as in a big outside loop and pushing hard at the bottom to complete. I decided I want to be an old pilot and do not do aerobatics anymore, it's for the young bold pilots.

??? That looks like a Red Bull race minus the gates. Kinda like shooting minus a target.

I went in a Decathalon one time... and did a few stunts....

My fav was a stall turn....

anything more than 1.05 g's though.. I didn't like!!

I am glad I am on the ground watching those guys throw their planes around and I am not in the plane!..... were I a passenger for 3 minutes....there would be a huge gastro-mess to clean up!! :O

The European pilots have a completely different style than the American counterparts. They tend to be more artistic and precise, always did even way back in the 60's. They practice for 100's of hours. Americans are more of the agressive, flamboyant and extreme style.

Matt Chapman, Rob Holland, and Mike Goulian are the best out there IMO. They combine the wild with precision that you can only develop preparing for world level competition. Watch that video of Rob at around 4:06 and check out the consecutive rolls on a string. The airplane doesn't move even a little bit. That's pretty damned tough.

That said, I can't wait to see what Skip Stewart will be capable of when his new airplane is built.

Sean is a great pilot, but his shows bore me to death. It's all gyroscopic with almost no variation to it.

I did notice his roll rate varies from one part of the roll to the other and he often misses the "Point"... (0, 45, 90,180 etc)

He still has the massive clankers and, I think he will be the first to get close to the Thrust:weight ratio we enjoy with models..... (Other than Wayne and his Turbo Raven)

One year at the TOC, I saw Wayne Handley.. he threw that plane around like an exwife!!!

the next year I saw Patty Wagstaff.... yeah.. she lacked the "WOW" schizzy... but she had the points nailed!!

The first year Wayne had the TR, I saw it at the Airbase Formerly known as George in the high desert of Ca.... he didn't throw it around, and he was still new to the plane... but clearly he had the POWER!! Too bad he didn't have enuff time to really debug it!

I didn't think his demonstration matched up to Wayne or Sean or Patty or Matt or...well... any of'em....

All I saw was a bunch of "Bank'n'Yank" with too much high energy directed towards the spectators.... I don't think he could get away with that in the US...(with one nice torque roll....)

Maybe it is better in person?

While we're kinda on the topic of personal G limits... when I was somewhere around 15 I pulled about 8 Gs in a pitts S-2C, and like 4 or 5 negative. I liked it a lot actually, that was the same flight in which I did my first double hammerhead and negative humpty bump (definitely a fun one). I think my first lomcevak was the flight after that.

Last year I pulled a few Gs in the P-51C and still liked it, but I'm kinda skinny and floppy now a days and should really try bench pressing half-full milk jugs before I try aerobatics again. It's so strenuous! It's one thing to have the coordination. It's another world all together to be in shape enough to do this stuff.

Ps. I'll tell a secret. I do not like Yawn Tucker's show that much. Very repetitive. Tumble, fly by. Some short rolling manuver, lower fly by. Same tumble, fly by. An outside loop, then same tumble, etc.
My favorite personally aside from Fang and John Mohr, if we're talking aerobatics with aerobatic planes, is Svetlana. She's just fun as heck to watch and the Sukhoi is an insanely capable aircraft.
Amongst american pilots, I like Gary Ward. He's super precise and knows how to entertain and demonstrate mean skill all in one package.
