Taildraggers rotate to tail up with a small dip at takeoff. Wings are too draggy otherwise*. Might drive tailwheel back into ground but only in really weird conditions like stomping on brakes only when in reverse

*You do rarely fly off in 3 point but only on super soft non standard conditions in max performance mode. Takes a ton of practice to get it right, or at least for me. Includes a bunch of rudder tapdancing

casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.

Taildraggers only remain fairly common on cropdusters because they're pointed out to be less prone to have the propeller damaged by obstacles on an unimproved runway.

I'm going to do something similar with my Toyota pickup. It will be a little more elaborate than that, but it will use similar available and inexpensive materials.
