Hoping theres an experienced aerobatic pilot here that will confirm something for me. I've got a little over 10 hours of dual aerobatic instruction in a Super Decathlon and a Pitts S-2C, and even 1 hour in an Extra 330L. I've been doing barrel rolls and loops in my little stubby wing, 60hp Sonerai for awhile now. And, I thought I was at least minimally competent with these maneuvers. But today, I twice fell out of the top of a loop and recovered 90 degrees off my heading. Both times, going over the top, I got a little pre-stall buffet and the controls were a little mushy, despite a 140mph entry speed and a solid 3.5g pull. The only thing I can think of is that I just happened to be going downwind with about a 10 knot quartering tail wind. Most of my other days days doing loops in the Sonerai, there had been very little wind, if any. Does this sound right? Or, am I screwing something else up?
