I absolutely agree there sir! I have very little experience of 'having control' IRL, but (from my couple of 'fun' lessons in a Cherokee, amounting to just 1.5 hrs, see link) I do remember the feel of the rudder pedals during taxiing - & it would definitely be nice to get that in sim.

On finals, my instructor was happy enough to not re-take control until about 20ft above the runway.

As far as being spot on...that is exactly the opposite of what one of our members with thousands of hours of tail wheel time says. I'll see if I can get him in here. He flies for a major airline that I won't take the liberty to mention out of respect for him.

Thanks for this, I have spent quite a few hours careening off the runway this week. I will try again to get off the ground in the spit today whilst dancing on the pedals :-)

Most well written and helpful thing I've read on the topic!

Not only do you clearly have the expertise but you ability to articulate it in a concise and helpful manner is very impressive.

I really appreciate you taking the time to share you knowledge with us. This, is exactly the kind of information that fascinates me and I love learning more about it. Not to mention the fact that it just makes time spent in DCS even more rewarding.

Thank you so much for all 3 parts! Cheers!

I just read this, its gold. From a tail dragger pilot too.
