The biggest problem when learning to fly taildraggers is not resisting the tendency to over control them. I deliberately take about the same time to correct an upset as it takes to develop. Usually it is corrected before it becomes visible to an observer - start early so you can make minor corrections. Above all, avoid 'fanning' the rudder.
