Default Tailwheel for ST models MX2

Hi Guys,
I bought an ST models MX2 a few weeks back (still waiting for the wind to drop so I can maiden it!)

Can anyone recommend a supplier for a tail wheel assembly to swap for the flimsy stock item?

Something about 1" diameter would be good as I'll be flying off grass and I've already enlarged the main UC.

Cheers

Dave

Dave, perhaps you should look into dubro's steerable taiwheel. If the size fits, the engineering seems to be quite fine.

Thanks Air-on, I actually picked a Dubro rear wheel from my LHS on Saturday, different design- a bit more robust but should do the job!
