Yup, the dreaded cartwheel us usally caused by lack of rudder input during takeoff. I had the exact same problem with my cub until I learned how to use the rudder during takeoff. It counteracts the torque roll tendancy, and does not require as much aileron input during take off.
Once your airbourne after about 15-20 seconds you will not require to use the rudder as much due to the fact you now have proper airflow over the surfaces.

Smooth runway, good throttle management, use a little up elevator and some right rudder and you should be good!

Re: help

I did a first test flight on one of these for a fellow club member & have flown it several times since. It is a sweetheart! The only issue I had was noseing over at the begining of the take off run in the grass. That was cured by moving over to a bare spot on the field & using full up elevator to start the take off run & easeing it back to neutral after about 6 to 8 feet. Don't recall touching the rudder on take off.

A chap I work with has one also & he just hand launches it from a standing position - no problem!
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!
