My judgement is that the MXS is the best competition aerobatic airplane today. Here is an example of why I say that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxC71kqzoSwYou either compare it to a Pitts, or an Extra, or a Yak. Maybe a One Design.
But everyone compares those.........to a Pitts.
I took a basic two day aerobatics course years ago, in a two seat Pitts. They didn't do anything in this video we didn't do, so I would say it's no more than mid level stuff.Would you call this entry level aerobatics, mid level, advanced or extreme? Sometimes a camera can make things different than reality.
On a Pitts. Would the airplane in this video probably be a single aileron wing or dual? I don't know enough about aerobatics to know from watching it.
Aerobatics in this video, is this something that needs the big HP engines or is this pretty standard acrobatics for the smaller 125hp engine
You need to correct that situation, Too.I've yet to fly a Pitts ...,
When I was flying serious aerobatics in my S-1S, I launched with 8 gallons of fuel. When going some place, I launched with a full tank, closer to 18 gallons. The added weight was very noticeable.but everything I've read indicates that weight is the enemy -probably moreso than almost any other sport airplane. A few misplaced pounds can transform the ship.
