Brent I had the same idea on the tailwheel, nobody really has a good retracting tailwheel for a 15 lb. and under warbird. I have used the one robart has but its chincee, plastic housing. I was gonna order a cheap set of air tricycle gear from hobby city and use the nose for my tail, keep the mains for a smaller warbird. I have a esm p51D coming from TBM, gonna try it out on that, if it works I will probably do the same on my big H9 p-47.
