Â*Hello there friendly folks,
I have graduated from learning on a .60 Goldberg Protege and a .60 Hobbistar MKIII and i have just bought my first gas plane.
I think its a 1/4 Balsa USA Army piper cub on a Zenoah 2200. I do not have the plane in my hands yet, but I should by the weekend.
I have been practicing on the simulator, but I do not seem to be able to land the Piper Cub (on the sim) without bouncing ... My instructor always said to ''flare-up'' on the other models, so I am trying the same thin here at the last moment (on the sim).
Since this is a tail-dragger, I don't seem to have a good handle on the landing ... Its either bouncy OR by flaring up I am hitting the tail (on the ground) when the front wheels touch while landing.
Any hints from the seasoned pro's before I attempt to fly this thing this coming weekend?
I want to put some more hours on the simulator during the week.
Thanks in advance!
