Default Tailwheel

Did you notice your tailwheel turning at the end of the video?
When I was in phase 1 my brother routinely flew next to me and always said my tailwheel was turning. Albeit slowly.

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

Yes - They always seem to do that. The RV tailwheel is the second one on the aeroplane both the stock vans one and the Lightweight one spin in every video I have of them. Same on my Pitts.

For what it's worth I think it's down to the airspeed differential close to the underside of the aircraft (slower) versus further out (faster) - All the video I have shows the wheels spinning in the same "normal" direction, but never at high rotation speeds strangely.

I'd love to see what happens with the main wheels - I could imagine them spinning quite fast due to the spats enclosing the top part of the wheel.
