Ok, I get the asymmetrical load thing but I still think that an aircraft rated for aerobatic G-loads should be less touchy than that. Granted, most of the forces are at the wing spar. And I am guilty of horsing a Cessna around by the tail but I've never seen one fail or even be loose. Many of these were flight school aircraft (Sierra Academy), so the maintenance wasn't the best and the airframe hours were high. I don't push the tail on my RV (love my bogie bar), but I am confident it is solid enough to take it if I needed to; I recheck the attachment every annual or if the fairing gets removed for any reason.
And so I stand corrected about the fairing. I don't think I could get enough movement out of my tail to make the fairing cause a sound, but if others are experiencing it, it is worth checking out.
