Powering up APM on level surface

I know I'm supposed to power up the APM on a level surface before flying, but has anyone got any recommendations for use with a taildragger, as when its on the ground its pitched up, and when it flies it will be level.

  • put something under the tail to make it as level as possible. That will work.


    Alternatively get a narrow box that fits the fuselage in with the wings on and let it rest in their while APM boots up (as in elevator and main wing the only thing supporting the plane)
