Default Landing in the Bf 109K-4

Can someone please enlighten me how to land the BF-109 without tilting left or right.

Approach and touchdown goes well.
But quickly during the rollout the aircraft suddently tilts left or right, dipping the wings into the ground.

Tailwheel is locked, Flaps fully down. Stick fully back once on the ground.

Track:

Default How to land without tilting left or right

Raise the flaps after landing to help the breaking process and give you less lift on the wings

It takes practice, and hitting the runway just right... she is unforgiving if you bobble

I guess you need to be very gentle with this one And raising flaps during langing takes so much time, that by the time they are up you'd be propably already at the parking spot Practice, practice...

Even tilting left and right on the ground after landing, I've still kept the plane in one piece, which is more than can be normally said for my Dora landings.

After my first four landings, I've haven't left a smoking crater yet. Feels like a miracle after the 190!

You just have to catch any yaw early. It will suddenly click and you wont struggle so much any more.

Thx for the help.....

What is the best reaction to lateral movements ?

Rudder input or differential braking ?

Agreed. Brakes give you the best chance

if you start rolling to the right, feather the right brake to stop the roll, then feather the left brake to stop the right turn.

you end up constantly feathering both brakes almost randomly till you come to a stop...
