Wanted to add a tail wheel to my Old Speedster. Most of the solutions that I came up with were on the heavy side. This one is not. Here is one way to do it. The thin plastic tubing is about 1 1/2″ long. A better solution might be to have the tail wheel supported at the fuselage to take the weight off of the rudder. Maybe version #2.
Read a couple of positive reviews of the Aldi / WorkZone Mini Hot Glue Gun, so I took a ride over to Aldi to pick one up. This was in early June. No WorkZone tools! Apparently when Summer begins the tools go into the warehouse and the summer products take their place on the shelves. So I checked my favorite fallback place, eBay. And sure enough the WorkZone Mini Glue Gun was available from a couple of sellers. Thank you eBay!
The color of the FliteTest water resistant foam board is very similar to the color of cardboard. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone made tape the color of cardboard for use on that foam board? Well, someone does! I found this product at Amazon but it is probably available elsewhere too. Just what I needed. I tried to cut the elevator bevel free hand on my Old Speedster and cut through the paper hinge. The repair looks good and the tape added very little weight.
