Yep ... my Corvair powered Sonex likes a bunch of left rudder when rolling the power on to leave planet Earth!Then when I first flew a VW powered airplane, for the first 10 or so takeoffs, I keep saying "Left rudder, left rudder", being so used to using right rudder without thinking about it.
Many boats are push to go and any good sailor can work a wheel or a tiller. It's easier if you understand the reasoning.Makes sense (I fell off a tractor once when I was a kid).
When I was learing how to fly, one of the most difficult things for me to learn was "PUSH the throttle FORWARD to Go". Pretty much everything else that I had ever driven up to that point was "PULL the throttle BACK to Go". Tractors, boats, dirt bikes, snowmobiles. Heck, even my wife's brand new BMW has "Push to go reverse, Pull to go forward" on the gear shift. Pretty much everything I'd ever driven was set up so that power was cut if the persons hand wasn't on the control. Safety, I guess...
There were a lot of times early on that I'd be on final and would reduce the throttle when I meant to add power. That gets your attention.
I've been flying for nearly 20 years now. I still make a conscious and determined decision of "PUSH to Go" every time.
Never seen a boat that had a pull-to-go throttle. Every outboard with remote controls is push-to-go. Every stern drive, too. Every jet boat.Many boats are push to go and any good sailor can work a wheel or a tiller. It's easier if you understand the reasoning.
Lots of students struggle with the rudder pedal thingy, especially the weight shift trike versus conventional airplane rudder/tail wheel.
I thought the weight shift trike versus airplane roll control would always be an issue but it is not. It is just different.
