I must say that I love all the infinite flight guides on YouTube. But one thing I’ve noticed flying around a lot (especially on the training server) are pilots messing up takeoffs and landings by scraping the tail on takeoff/landing.
I think it would be a great idea to make a handy guide video to teach newer pilots how to avoid tail strikes on takeoff and landing.
For me personally, I have taught myself how to not scrape the tail on takeoff especially with the Airbus A321, Airbus A340, Boeing 737-900, Boeing 747-8i and the Boeing 777-300ER due to their length, by simply making sure I don’t go past a certain angle during rotation.
Just a suggestion for the the IF team to consider for the next guide in the near future. I think most pilots will appreciate it when they see their replays and don’t have to go “Ouch.” I still sometimes accidentally strike the tail on landing, and I think I would appreciate a guide like this.
On a side note, for the next update, you guys need to work the 787-9’s HUD angle, for some reason it faces downwards rather than directly out at a level 90° angle (only seems to be a problem for the -9, no problem on the -8 or -10)
