What am I doing wrong on my carrier takeoffs. I start engine, throttle to 70%, release chock, but I nose over every time. I thought maybe the wheel brake was still engaged but releasing it makes no difference. I thought landing was hard but I cannot even take off! help someone please!!!!

You're throttling up too much too fast. Think of it like driving a car...you don't want to smoke the tires! Instead power up to around 40%, then smoothly increase no faster than 10% every couple of seconds. You should already be rolling well before you hit 100%.
