You do, but due to the solid link between rudder pedals and nosewheel steering, it must be neutralized before the nosewheel touches down.

How much tailwheel time do you have?
11 Hrs as of today in a Cub J3

My favorite airplane.
What horsepower?
I learned to fly in a J3 52 years ago.
I currently fly one powered by an O-200 (100 hp).

85 HP I believe.

I was there just learning how to fly it, I didn't appreciate it much because I'm a bigger guy and it wasn't comfortable at all, the slightest bit of wind had an impact on flying, It was VERY rudder sensitive and you had to keep the stick all the way back while landing.... If I were a bit smaller I would be able to appreciate it a little more like most. I forgot it was made by Piper so the Archer is my second airplane...
