Most of the time I use the brakes on final approach to bleed the speed, but I release them right above the ground to gain full rudder control.

Thanks! What are your percentage values on the brakes and on the pitching up compensation? Mine are currently at 60% and 10% but I haven't tried it out yet.

Also, I 'm debating whether or not to take off of the 2 inch grass or hand launch.... My little wheelie bar on the tail skid helps but the prop still gets nicked...
