"tall grass" means different things to different people. We all give pause when we see 'tall grass'
due to it's potential for hiding objects which are detrimental to our health.
But does anyone have any specific rules of thumb they've found accurate for the judgement of drag and/or nose-over
risk based on the 'average height' of the grass? Since I own the hayfield, I know I have no debris in my field,
and I don't want to mow the crop for a runway - so I'm trying to decide how tall I can get away with this until
the drag tends to lift my tail on landing so much i can't keep down. Someone must have tested this, intentionally or not
I have a two seater 800lb taildragger on 26" ABW's. My takeoff is a non issue cause my initial ground roll is on mowed lawn
for the first 100ft, and i'm off in about 100-120 typically.
Any thoughts based on percentage of tire height? or any other measureable examples or experience would be interesting - I searched 'tall grass' and similar on the forum but couldn't find any definitive replies. Thanks all!
