 Doesn't work so well in some Beechcraft which have the gear and flap knobs close together.. IF you don't hold the weight OFF the nosewheel  with back stick you will have some directional control difficulties also in some tri gear types . Lots of weight on the nosewheel makes it a wheelbarrow  which has the instability of a tailwheel plane regarding GofG effect but worse as it's a LOONGG way forward and only ONE wheel that's not very strong. It often ends up with the wing tip and the nosewheel  being the only contact points and over she goes on it's back.  Landing too fast is usually the cause of this phenomenon.  Nev
