    Sometimes there is a fine line between disaster and survived... that was flying that line close.

    RE: tim's wow take off

    If the pilot knew how to use the rudder, this would have been another boring takeoff............

    So to that pilot, I say THANK-YOU for having just enough skills to get in trouble, and not enough skills to make me laugh!!!!

    RE: tim's wow take off

    That plane needs smooth throttle in order to take off properly. I think thats a Paulistina, Cub knock off. Looks to me like he started getting in trouble then gunned it. Torque roll - prop stops and plane turns. Did something very simular myself - once - only I did a complete roll 4ft off the ground. People aroung me said "wow, what a save" I said I had nothing to do with it. Dumb luck. And yes, this type of taildragger (and most) need constant right rudder on take off.

    I am sorry, but that is the best, i still cant stop laughing. I think the pilot thinks like i do (over power everything).Without ,she'would have ended upin the trash.
    That is the #1 takeoff in my book!!!!!
    I will be sharring this with some other members

    What? Really, what is wrong. That's how I alway's take off. Keep's it interesting.
    NOT!
    That is some serious overpowering and great thumb control. He should get into profiles. WOW

    Torque roll - prop stops and plane turns.

    Not sure about your definition of a torque roll.

    Looks like a Nosen Citabria.

    Amazing and it wouldn't have survived if it wasn't overpowered....
