hi guys can anyone give me some ideas to reduce my fokker dr1 from ground looping when trying to take off as once it gets its wheels of the deck its fine it seems to turn to the right is it better to hold the tail on the ground till she gets some speed and then let go of the elevator or is there something else i can tweak on the airframe????? any ideas
