Can somebody who has done the procedure on the CZ Cub do a step by step reply as to how it is done? For example, what size Sullivan did you order (there are several), did you go right over the exiting plastic on the main body of the plane or did you glue on wood and screw into that, how did you attach things to the rudder, etc? Did you use expoxy for the procedure or CA? The more detail the better. There most likely will be different methods but hopefully not. If this has already been explained in a thread, please show me where to go. Also, if this is not the way to go and somebody has simply coated or covered the existing small part that breaks with epoxy or something else to just make it stronger let me know. Thanks everybody!

I used the sullivan tailwheel rated for this models weight. i believe up to 10lbs, like a 40-60 size. I used a piece of ply epoxied to the plastic and foam, painted to match, attached with blind nuts supplied. I used JB weld to fix the pivot point on the rudder. that was the biggest pain but not too tough with the medium cure stuff.
