Ya know, I'm what I would consider a low time pilot. Certainly less than 25K
hours in an overpowered plane such as you profess to fly. I would like to have
a few things going my way when I am first cleared to fly my "experimental".
And maybe I'll wind up being a numb-butt and won't be able to decern a slip
from a skid as easily as you. Does your blanket statement mean I hould never
fly? I should never fly until I have 25K hours? Boy! Talk about a Catch 22!

I think that your comment was totally un-productive and not in the spirit of
what we are trying to accomplish here: Sharing constructive ideas/critisism.

Thanks...but no thanks for your opinion.
