    Great flying and great video really enjoyed it watched it twice and probably a few more times. The large front wheel do good job but there were a few shots of the Tailwheel really taking a beating. Thanks for doing that.

    Thanks guys! @WMcNabb Enough time to grind your beans, boil water, French press, and enjoy a full cup LOL!
    @Snoopy1 Thank you! I've watched it so many times editing I was starting to get numb! But YES, that little wheel is getting a whoopin! I'm surprised the plastic hasn't broken, and the rudder hasn't had any impact damage from the wheel.... and that the OEM spring is still good - I've bent it back a couple times. It's just mesmerizing to see that 8.75" tire conforming to it's surroundings.
    @-Rick- THANKS!

    If my memory serves me you got the Tailwheel with three leafs and I got as many others only two leafs on the Tailwheel, that’s good you really need the three.

  7. speaking of tailwheels, I have not acted yet, (waiting to see if I need tail weight or the CG point) But Ohio Superstars makes an unbreakable unbendable 1/3 scale unit including a 2 7/8" wheel, spring steel leaf springs, 6061 T6 casters, ball bearing, weighs 5 3/4 oz, has anyone weighed the stock gear? I don't have a scale. The holes don't line up, but he is willing to drill a hole for me before he tempers the steel because afterwards it would be nearly impossible with normal drill bits. I used to use his products exclusively on my 120cc 30 pound towplanes and never had a failure, bullet proof. Interestingly although a different layout the over all length and height are almost identical to the stock gear. 80 bucks. Note the clamp on the springs is just a keeper for shipping, there is a bolt hole there.

    Looks nice! I wouldn't worry about weight in the tail. I have 6oz of weight in the tail as it is.

  9. servos arrived, I cheaped out and went with a Chinese brand. A lot of guys in Australia seem to be using them even on 30/40% aerobatic ships, hope they are ok. I won't be flogging this plane and it won't be getting a lot of air time so I think they suit my needs well. 50 bucks each Titanium and aluminum gears ,coreless motor, 2 bearings etc. Radio pictured is shipped today from Singapore should be in by weeks end. NoW I have some work to do Yeah!
    I'll post a review of the servos after I test them on the plane for centering etc.

  10. fun with wires today, got the wing harnesses fabricated, actually installed two wing servos without radio to see the geometry. using top hole in horn and a 1 3/4" spacing on a 2" arm seems to give 98% max throw or so. not sure how the geometry will work, I think that is ok, correct me if I'm not remembering correctly. seems the alignment is off so I'm splitting differences, won't know until I plug it in, detach the servo arm and get endpoints.
