Ouch

or, due to the rudder being too ineffective below a certain
speed?
yes, minimum rudder control below 65MPH and virtually no tail wheel control until below 45.


If the rudder is part of the problem has anyone modified theirs to
be larger?
Yes, several Dragonfly type rudders have been installed on Q2s (including on my plane). Rudder control established down to 25MPH.
