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

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!!!!

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
thanks for the belly laugh, Its been awhile

What? Really, what is wrong. That's how I alway's take off. Keep's it interesting.

That is some serious overpowering and great thumb control. He should get into profiles. WOW

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....
