I really like the looks of your mod and would consider it if it works well for you!
Well unfortunately I can not find the control arm for the nose gear I had to use it as a fixed nose gear without the ability to steer. I am sure I did not throe it away because I never throw airplane stuff away . Even if its mangled foam I find a reason to hold on to it for a week. Maybe I should check my 2 year old's room and toy chest.

Good news is that as a fixed gear and some foam behind it so it does not travel; it has held up well. I am going to look around for suitable replacement nose gear.

I will post on the subject if I find something thst can be used. And I hope you post if you find something as well because just simply replacing it with the original part seems unlikely. I cant find the original part anywhere.

I was able to fly my SR today and it was truly enjoyable. My front gear is still OK but I would like something that I don't have to worry about. I check it before and after every flight. The bracket I made to stabilize it has done it's job but I know at some point I will want to change it.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
