I don't fly the big jets but I don't care for the Cessna, the Cessna is closer to what I fly.
My choice Cessna (if you put the third wheel in the back 🙄 ).

Radarman, how were you "inspired" to use the tail-draggers instead of other aircraft? they seem like an obsure aircraft nowadays... 😕

Ha ha! I'll like to fly the big jets. But the tail draggers are also quite enjoyable. I haven't taken a small plane up in some time.

Taildraggers are kind of hard for me to fly. i.e. takeoff and land. I sometimes flip over in the smaller ones. I don't fly the big jets too much either.

I always wanted to fly the DC-3 and after I saw how easy it was to fly and land I stuck with them.
I land in fields and roads and take off again, they flip over if you are taxiing to fast and put on the brake. Taxi with full flaps and "pump" the brake. Land on the main gear first, settle down on the tail and then brake.
The tricycle gears flip easier.

No I mean like in the Piper Cub and Extra on takoff they will flip over on it's side and on landing the same thing happens.

Give them full throttle and they should lift off by themselves. The extra is very fast.
Your landing to fast, or too steep.
But the best bet is that you are trying to turn while taxiing to fast.

I voted for Airbus, since I am an Airbus fan. Most of the time I fly big jets and sometimes I fly Cessna, Piper, etc to get used to those aircraft too. I don't fly tail-draggers...It's not that I don't like them; it's because I'm not interested on them.

Lol, it's funny you say that, my bro and his friend came to visit, (they're both in their 30's) and we decided to have a contest to see who could fly the Baron 58 the best...I got my ass handed to me😛 It was awful. Then, we moved to the 757, and I hand flew the entire little flight, which made me the winner automatically, because they used autopilot, and I managed to stay on course with only the Flight Director on.
