Dave Parry wrote:I would look at scrapping the tailwheel in the kit, it's really isn't a good design, more of an afterthought. It contently kicks the rudder over when sat on the ground, not good for the servo. This needs a re-think, maybe an independent tail wheel that just moves freely the rudder is more then capable of steerig the plane.

And here the current scheme.
Hope it helps.

Mine is fixed and works perfect..
Alan Cantwell 1131 wrote:Prob good advice on the tailwheel, I always ran mine with closed loop control, with springs to take the sideways load, but, as Dave says, the rudder will do the job, re the covering, we are finding the hobby king film to work well, and it’s cheap,
