I got it figured out thanks. I LOVE THIS BIRD. However it sucks it is so light. I mean its like paper compaired to other 1400mm birds. Its doomed for nose overs. I started just belly landing it. It has less physical impact that way than nosing over.

Just to make sure....are you flipping to high rates and using full elevator UP while on the ground. This is nearly mandatory procedure on nearly "All" warbirds (there are some exceptions).

I was able to prevent nose overs before I modified my airframes landing gear to rake forward, but it was a delicate balance......much better results and very few if any nose over after the landing gear modification.

Flipping to highest rate elevator up anytime on the ground including landings as soon as the mains touch down and absolutely any taxi durations

+1 for the high rate elevator! I find it a must for the PZ SE5a as well.

Yes full elevator on ground. It mostly happens after the plane starts to slow a tad after touching down. I am on pavement that is smooth as silk too.

Yeah she can be a bit nosey on the ground, especially on grass. I've done the forward rake mod and that did help, but I have found that you still need to feather the throttle along with full up elevator as she slows down after landing, just to keep the tail planted.

I use 2.75" Du-Bro low bounce. Very quiet and makes my landings look good.

That's strange. On pavement I've never had nose over issues.

I let her touch on mains and input a little up elevator, after the speed is flared I input full elevator to sit her tail.

My CG is neutral.
