A couple weeks ago, I attempted to Maiden the Dh.82, due to bumps in the heavily trodden football field, it just nosed-over (and the mini plane had no hope at all), the prop caught the ground and flew off. Even without that problem, all planes that I've attempted to take off have yawed all over the place as each wheel hit a different bump at a different time. Of course, once up to speed, the plane begins to coast over the bumps and control becomes easier, but getting up to that speed can be, well, a bumpy ride! What if there was a way of getting the plane up to speed before it had to ride those bumps? Introducing HARDBOARD! Cheap sheets of flexible wood you just pack into your car (gonna cut these in half, can't be bothered to put the back seats down every time I go flying), and lay'em down to give your labour of love the smooth start it deserves! I would only be willing to call this a 'Take-off Strip', but if you wanna put a tail-hook on your plane and bungee chords half way through it, then Godspeed you naval-nut!
