Hi,

yestarday I started a campaign in a P40B and had big trouble during take off! When accelerating the plane starts to swing from the right to left and back.... There seems to be a kind of resonanc. Trying to correct it with the stick was not easy so I crashed 2 of 3 times.

I remember fying a P40 some time ago without any problems.

The Hawk 81A-2, P-40B and P-40C exhibit this on many, but not all, maps

Thye best way to avoid this is to get the tail up as quickly as possible. Once the tail is up, this waddling behavior is gone. at about 40mph, push forward with the stick gently and then back off, you'll pop the tail up and be on the main wheels
