I need a nose wheel arm. One of those arms that attaches to the nose wheel landing gear, and is what the clevis attaches to. One of those puppies will really solve a problem for me, go dig around in your junk drawer, I know you have one for me!!


PLEASE!!

Thanks!

Jim

There is enough room for an arm to run back to the rudder servo. I went to the LHS today and they only had real big ones.

Nitro Take a look at this thread. It is a great little kit by Dubro for about $5. If I had an extra I would send it to you, but the only one I have is turning the nose gear on my T28. Had to drill out the collar a little but works great and much stronger than the plastic original http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showpost.php?p=615985&postcount=35

Thats the true power of the Wattflyer Forum.

Dumo, thanks. I actually had a similar idea, just using a long screw, and an aileron control rod connector. Not enuf throw. Your example is far superior, and pretty easy to do.

YOU ROCK!

Spad is sending me an arm, but I'm gonna try this too:

Dont make the same error I did!

This is the photo of the additional control rod for the tailwheel (no error) notice the POLK servos!

Here is a photo of the tailwheel. At first, I did not have a wheel collar on the inside, and when I turned left, the wheel would skid, but I could not see it. I was struggling with ground control and didnt know why until FEAR where I found the skidded tire (where I fly on dirt it would not mar the tire)
The axle is short, so I took an aluminum one, and sanded it down on the disk sander thin enough to still work.
