I don't think the take-off difficulty is realistic. - Page 6 - ED Forums

Bf-109 well known feature is that tail vertical stabilizer is very small compare to other planes but the tail is significant longer.
This makes two things,
First it is hard to control at low speeds
Second because of the long tail rudder is quite effective at Yawing plane left right so pilot can easy bring aim to make a shoot even if nose is quite off the target left/right

You're contradicting yourself.. and the rudder is large enough for yawing the plane, even at low speeds, but in reality.

I'm not, at high speeds small rudder is no problem, but long tail change plane behavior compare to one with short tail and bigger rudder surface..

Watch this, 1 take off 2 points of view.
From outside take off looks smooth, but once you jump in cockpit you will see how much this bf-109 drifted to the left during take off it got nasty left swing just before lift off, and this pilot used i think 1.2ATA
Start watching from 1:30 is you don't want to look at bf-109 start up.

If you watch closely couple of moments after tail lift of what is happening with the plane, DCS bf109 act very similar to this real one.
