Ok, My situation is this. I have been taking flying lessons since last September
however this has all been in a flightstar.

I Just finished restoring an old twinstar. taxiing is going well, but i know there is a big difference from a tricycle and a tail dragger.

does anyone have any videos of take offs and landings in a kolb maybe with some instructions as to what to look for.

I have not found anyone near me that does tail dragger training and I dont really want to train in a full sized trail dragger when I am in an ultralight.

I went from a RANS S12-XL (tricycle gear) to a Kolb MkIIIC ...  virtually no difference.  It's advised on takeoff to work up to the point where you get your taill off the ground as soon as possible, but don't worry about that at first.  It will happen organically.

And, like any taildragger, ground-handling is different and a cross-wind landing can get you in trouble (unless you have differential braking in your Kolb).

Good Afternoon esp3500, I built my first UltraStar three decades ago when I lived in Wisconsin. Since I retired from the airlines, I have done a lot of videoing in my FireFly, here in Florida. 
What part of the country is home for you?

I am in North Carolina. Prier to last fall I had no experience with the flying of anything. However I knew I wanted two planes, one with a enclosed cockpit and
one completely open. I bought both the flightstar and the Kolb at nearly the same time. Since the flightstar was not in too bad of shape when I got it I fixed it first. The circa 1980's Kolb twinstar was a different story. It was in bad shape and need completely torn down repaired and recovered from the ground up. The Open cockpit twinstar appeal to me for this time of year because its hot down here but not so bad up there. I come from decades of motorcycle riding so the open appeals to me.

No offense but if your original message means you don't know how to fly,
then you need to get lessons at least through the first solo or you're
going to be talking to Jesus personally real soon now. Kolbs are real
airplanes, not toys. Ask anyone here about a guy named Scott (sorry I
don't remember his last name), who got a Sport Pilot ticket, built a
beautiful Mk IIIX. He stalled, spun in on approach, and was killed..
Kolbs are great aircraft but they have to be flown all the time and if you
get slow, even though Kolbs recover from stalls as predictably as a Cessna
172 but you have to know what to do and when to do it.
I have a video on Youtube that deals with the changing perspective of the
horizon while on approach as you pull on flaps. The video has no take off
shots. My other videos at rick51076 might help a bit.
