Nosewheels are a weak point on most planes but especially U/L's. Unless the plane sits static with tail high you can't pin it on the ground at all and most makers won't do it for style and strength reasons. +prop clearance considerations. which can be a problem also for tailwheel as you point out. You can also have a problem pinning it down in a strong crosswind without the prop becoming a lawnmower on take off. Nev
