Franco Ciech I dont understand all those "stall" after landing while I'm taxing... Sometime I have the same problem taxing before take off... What can I do ? Thanks Franco
Norm Richards Will give you this one.. You are learning. Ok. The smaller planes, Piper Cub, DHC2 and even DHC3 tend to have an easy rise or lift. In this pirep, you have autopilot ON when you land. You have to turn it off autopilot before any landing. Only turn autopilot after take off when you hit level flight (So don't have autopilot on when ascending because the autopilot will try to lift your airplane too fast with the fpm climb settings and this can cause stalls while climbing). When taxing just try to keep the taxi speed down to 15kts or under and keep the elevation of the nose down and no flaps and definitely no autopilot. This will help to minimize the lift of the airplane while taxing.
