Tip for tail draggers taxiing

I am reading a book on a WW2 spitfire pilot. In the book they say: when taxiing a spifire (a tail dragger), swing from side to side to see where you are going! I just tried it and it works great.

Also works SPACEBAR by pulling POV higher, especially great in XCub, not so much in a Savage Cub

I had no idea

I’ve been using the trechnique for 1 day and it works well. It does slow you down a bit

Yep, this seems standard for all taildraggers - turn slightly right and look out the left side in front of you, turn slightly left and look out the right side in front of you. Happy flying!

Oh good, I was looking for the “End” key in the cockpit without much luck…!!
