The trick to achieving better over the nose visibility during take off is, after the tail comes up, to keep just enough forward stick to keep the nose down until sufficient speed is reached to rotate. Before the tail comes up, the best view is out of the side window. Also, pilots used to flying other, more modern, single engine civil aircraft, will find that a bit of anticipated extra rudder will help coordinate turns and prevent side slip.
