I know how it feels! My first taildragger was the FW-190D, and it took me forever to take off, and an eternity to land without breaking my neck. I can do it safely now provided I'm fully concentrated. I think I have developed some reflexes that really help, because there is not enough time to think-decide-act. Today I find the Bf-109K easier both in take-off and landing. It seems more stable (or smooth?) at low speed and therefore doesn't need as much corrective input. With the FW-190 it always feels like it's making its own crosswind; so I use the ailerons to keep the direction and the rudder to stay aligned with the runway.
My CH Pro Pedals have a distinct center bump, and that doesn't help when you need to make small control inputs around the center. I have ordered the MFG pedals and hope that they will fix that.
But no matter how good you get, keep in mind what Erich Brunotte said: "with the FW-190 your 100th take-off or landing requires as much concentration as your first one!"

MFG will definitely make a difference.. a lot, for that matter. I recommend you to use the 'no center' cam with 0 deadzone. You'll notice heavy improvements..

I find hardware quality and settings to make a world of difference. Overcoming the oversensitivity with a bit of curve and/or saturation can do wonder.
Adding a stick extension too.
MFG pedals and similar quality products are of a huge help, even in the first hours you may not feel it. I use MFG without spring for choppers, and it's amazing how precise I can go. This boost your confidence in what you are able to control, this is a big help

And then there's VR. Again, it's another world, I've botched 2 landings in 109 with the Rift, since then, everything is easy. Even the crosswind landing from the 109 campaign (well, it's noe "easy" but really feasible).

Since hardware quality & settings goes along with passing time inside the cockpit (for example, to find the correct settings), there's a moment where it simply clicks and everything becomes smooth.
