Default RE: v tail. how do you steer nosewheel?

I think you could get away without an exta servo. On landings, just as the front wheel hits the ground I usually don't have any elevator input anyway and on take offs, buy the time you build up enough speed to use the elevator, you should be moving fast enough that the tail has more authority than the front wheel anyway. The only plane I have with a front wheel is my Voyager, which is a sort of low wing trainer, so it floats in pretty nice and takes off easy. So, this may not apply.

OH, one more thought, if you have a computer radio with dual rates. You could set it up so that the rudder stick as much more movement than the elevtor for landing/takeoffs.
