Pair of 8" wheels wanted

Postby John Biggin » September 26th, 2018, 5:17 pm

Does anyone have a nice pair of 8 inch diameter (ish) light weight wheels suitable for my big Wilga glider tug? I have decided to forego a little scale for practicality; when you take off and land continuously you need all the help you can get. Currently I have 6 inch wheels but when the sprung under carriage bottoms (heavy landing) the strut can take out a divot. Not very elegant...


Thanks,


John

Honestly ! you dont really need bigger wheels. Just slow the engine down, there is also something when landing using the elevator pulling back on the stick a little at a time gradually holding the nose up. Its called Flairing. :lol:
If all else fails . I believe you have a Tranis transmitter that can do anything and talks back to you, you said. Just Shout. Tranis Land my plane for me. Flair ! FLAIR. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Have you tried Phil Clake of fighter aces. He can get them as he has got me 2 sets in the past year.
