    Nice shots of a plane that's not easy to handle! And based on what I see here, you're probably a little tail heavy as well. Having said that, you possibly are showing a classic stall three point landing! With just screen shots, it's hard to tell for sure!

    Tail-draggers are a totally different world which IMHO too few pilots really take the time to learn!!!! It's not just CG, it's also really knowing true actual angle of attack and understanding their aircraft's weight and balance!!

    To me a tricycle gear aircraft is a terrible alternative for GA pilots who never choose to learn good flying, taxing, and landing skills.

    When I was flying RW I thought it would be great to learn and fly a tail dragger. Never got the chance.

    A fine bit of work here David. Pappy Boyington would be proud. He started out in P-40s before advancing to the F4U Corsair. He made them both memorable.
