Amazing write up, Chief.

Your advice is logical, clear, and concise. I really like this.

Two things to say:

1. I can land and take off fairly smoothly after reading and following this advice.

I had to loosen my pedals (as I usually fly helos), but the 'wake up feet' advice really does work.

The other essential aspect was trimming and braking. If I trim correctly, I hardly notice when I contact the ground and don't even need to touch the brake. I land only on paved runways atm.

2. Would you consider posting this as a Steam guide if you haven't already? A lot of the newer / more casual players will never visit this forum. It would be good for them to get this information.

Thank you for the effort you must have put in to this.

Fly safe.
