Maybe I was being a little generous when I said hammerhead. He said he would
dive it for speed at full throttle and then pull up and kick the rudder with
just enough speed and thrust to get the nose pointing the other direction.
He was very young at the time!

Terry, I had a partner that used to do hammerheads in an Onan powered Q1,
and all this at low level. On day he almost killed himself doing one, as
opposed to all the other times, and just got back elevator authority in

any of that anymore. Ted
With a Onan??? Its comments like this that make me realize just how
perfectly, normally boringly, middle of the line sane I am, (when I rem to
take my meds).

Your friend have an idea of his roll rate or breakout force?
