Here is how i am taking off, i gently increase the throttle and then raise the rpm to 30 and keep centered , i try to get her tail up but barely manage hence i lift off and almost stall but manage to get nose down in the air. I find landing this girl quite easy.

I could never understand landing and the tail draggers were the worst but a glider pilot friend told me to land these tail draggers deny the ground b4 touchdown and there she was nicely on her legs yes got to give back pressure and keep her centered.

Thanks Chief... excellent post. This might just help me iron out a few creases. I was resorting to applying a bit of throttle at the slow wonky stage and then using brake dancing to come to a full stop but...

Just wanted to add my thanks for spending the time to explain this.

I have had many a "oh so that's why it did that" after reading your essays. Tail draggers are a complete new experience to me so your instruction has been invaluable!

Not really useful in a thread about landing and stopping, and also using RPM as a guide is fundamentally wrong.
