RE: Droppings After Take-off

My hypothesis is that this is caused by the opposite of the ground effect air cushion that causes the plane to float on decent to the runway. Shorly after lift off, leaving that "cushion", the plane settles just a bit, percieved as a drop.

I don't understand why if one engine is in reverse, and the other is forward of idle... the spoiler logic assumes you don't want to stop.
