Does anyone have a POH in WORD that I can shamelessly plagiarize and pass off as my own?

I had a couple of good ones, but I can't find them now. Bruce F, yours was one of them.

I should mention that my POH is still a work in progress, several areas need work particularly the performance section.

enjoy

No one is going to recommend those speeds in an experimental airplane. Do what I did: experiment and find out for yourself.

You MIGHT find what you are looking for if you dig through the old news letters. The lawyers didn't rule the country in those days.

A T18 with a fixed pitch prop will do a loop at an entry speed of 165kts if you pull 3 Gs. If you have a CS, or pull different Gs, you will have to change the entry speed.

Mine is a T18 with the C wing and original air foil and 150 hp fixed pitch. Aileron roll 140Kts, loop 145-150Kts, barrel roll 140Kts.
BUT before you do this you should know how your aircraft spins and more importantly how you recover it just in case you stuff up a manoeuvre.
Have fun
