I noticed you were giving a bit of down elevator to get the tail off the ground sooner. I imagine that helps to keep it going straight at the start of the take-off roll. The first time I noticed that technique was when getting some lessons on a full scale Pitts. The instructor gave down elevator at about the same time as the throttle when starting the takeoff roll. When I do that with my 40% Extra 330 it gives a more realistic takeoff roll, instead of just popping into the air.

Yes Dwight, its so realistic...I am doing it by reflex with piper, decathlon, etc...but I cant do it with my spitfire, the geometry is not the same...the plane will rapidly point the nose down and the prop will hit the ground. it will be the opposite : pulling the elevator and releasing it as the plane gets speed.
