Hard work and lazy feet!

Today was my second training flight in a Piper PA18A-150 Super Cub, ZK-BKN, up in Whanganui. Today's session was circuits, circuits and more circuits, with an ever-so-slight crosswind.

The flying itself is fun, but I clearly have a huge amount of work to do to get on top of the whole takeoff and landing bit... it seems my feet are very lazy after years of nosewheel-only flying :-( I think the theory is ok, but I need to get the feet moving and the stick in the right place [and preferably in a coordinated fashion!].

I have no photos from today, but for "fun", the following video shows what I am trying to avoid doing! Yes, it's a different aircraft, but the principles are still the same :-(
