See the Flight Chops main channel for MUCH more tail wheel flying as well as all sorts of flying content from aerobatics to IFR training!

There are over a dozen TailWheel Flying videos already published,
but these ones are key to understand why landing the Stearman on pavement is scary:

Regarding Weight and Balance as related to configuaton chagnes on planes like Jim’s:

The Airplane has been weighed and had an official W/B document created for each configuration.
When reconfigured, the appropriate W/B paper work is applicable.

And thanks to my friend Kerry for getting last minute photos of Jim’s Vortex Generators in a dark cold hangar 🙂
She’s a meteorologist, pilot and awesome photographer.

FLIGHT CHOPS DISCLAIMER:
I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
