h9 p40, p47 nose over

i fly off of a grass field. i have a lot of trouble with nose over on landings. these planes are the 60 size with retracts. does anyone have a solution besides doing away with retracts and put the fixed gear farther ahead. both planes fly great but i hate to land. any help would be appreciated. thanks howie.

Re: h9 p40, p47 nose over

The most popular modification per the forums on RCU is to shim the rear of the retracts with 1/8 ply spacers. This will help set the gear forward a bit and minimize nose overs. The downside is the gear may not retract as cleanly but who is gonna really notice that whens the plane is in the air.
Also some guys claim to have been able to replace the wire legs with Dubro
5/32 wire gear which are better quality and don't wobble as bad.

I know exactly what you mean .

Byron gave some good advise , but thats not all , there,s more .
Here,s what I do . First use youre duel rates and keep youre elevaterin the high possition while taxing . Just before takeoff put it in low rates . When you take off be progresive with youre throutle , don,t back off . As long as that prop is pulling it won,t nose over .

Landing is another story............. when you have touched ground and youre speed is low enoegh to switch the elevater rate switch and keep youre elevater up .

YES ...... this is complicated , it takes practice and some more practice . There are a lot of solutions to getting to what you want If anything , this has made me a beter pilot . I still nose over , but much less than I was . Our field is very rough . I did the shim thing , and changed to Robarts . Both things did help . But what helped me more was to change my procedure of taxing and takeing off and landing .

Oh yes another thing that helps is to have a very reliable and well tuned engine , so that it starts on one flip

Just shareing how I solved my problem .
