Do you fellow pilots have any god tips on tail wheel wire.
Hi Erik, you will love the way this plane flies. This is my first pull-pull tail wheel so I am no expert at all. I originally hooked it up with the hardware provided but on about the 10th flight one of my crimps slipped. If I had a good crimper, that method probably would have worked fine. But I ended up adding some of those little servo arm connectors and a piece of metal control rod to make it really easy to adjust the the tail wheel centering. This way I could just tie a knot in the wire on both ends and slide the control rod to make adjustments. I also added some scrap-wood guides to keep things from flopping around when the tail wheel is retracted.

I also added springs in-line with the wires but that was overkill and really not necessary. If you feel like tinkering, the springs have worked out well for me. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=642
