I guess this is a like tell me versus show me. If you tell me not to do something I might not do it. If you show me why you are telling me not to do it I'm probably going to be much more likely to respect your opinion.

Flight instruction does cost a few $$$, but is always fun and well worth doing.
I joined the IAC and flew my RV-8 in Primary Class in 2016, it was a Hoot!

+1 what Scott said!

Find some Aerobatic training, take the basic course (at least 10 hours). Tons of fun! It will take the mystery out of stalls, spins, and unusual attitudes. A good investment that will keep you safe.

Do it in a draggy, slow motion plane like a Citabria or Decathlon and you will appreciate your RV even more.
