I should have clarified that I'm using Heading Hold as I'm using the T-28 as a test bed before I install a second Guardian & 2 more on order in some tail draggers that are a bit squirrelly on takeoffs. The HH works quite well to steer a straight line; it is just the problem of wanting to flatten out the rotation that is giving me the problem.

But for the T-28, taking off with it turned off is certainly possible. For a tail dragger, I haven't really thought out the issue of rotation, as maybe once the tail is up & the Guardian is happy with the level flight position, it will just fly off with some added up elevator. Has that been the experience of those using 3D HH when taking off a tail dragger with the Guardian on?
