It's not difficult when you get it ...

In this track I am doing a circuit with a 10m/s crosswind from the left...

I did manage to land on my second attempt!
Speed about 200-225 before flaring out. Throttle off.
Then I did a long flair due to to much elevator so I got up a bit and then I lost speed and did drop down on runway, 3 point landing, no bouncing or anything like Dora!
After touchdown I pulled the stick slowly back all way.
Did brake a bit to much, so my left wing dipped to ground, did press right brake and it leveled out nice and fine and then It stopped on right side on runway without damage!!

On approach I did some small correction of flight path, and on final it went straight as a bullet, almost.... Very little rudder or aileron corrections.

No rudder help was used!

Seems I have improved ...

Edit *** The place where I tell "Stick slightly aft and to the left" should have been: "Stick slightly aft and to the right".

What is the best reaction to lateral movements ?

Rudder input or differential braking ?

As Strix mentioned, as soon as you touch down, ease the stick fully back into your lap to keep pressure on the tailwheel and you will roll out smoothly and be able to brake to a stop.

Thanks for Your feedback...

As You can se in my video above, I did that and succeeded.

What makes the difference for me is to keep power up slightly.

Here is a bit of advice...

Always use the same approach speed which means have a consistent power setting, flap usage, and gear extension time.

I will always pull power until 1000 RPM once at 300 km/her extend the gear. Right after that come full flaps and by then I am on the approach.

Don't be so anxious to land it and don't three-point land it. Fly it until it simply doesn't want to fly. Let the mains touch first and then let the tail fall. Tail lock should have been set prior and then just tap breaks.

Problem with 109 is narrow carriage which is why an Fw-190 three-point landing is not recommended because at too low a speed a narrow carriage is unstable.
