i agree, the original prototypes had dollies that would fall off after takeoff. i suspect that after losing a few dollies he just attached the wheels. i would just as soon keep the dolly. it's powered by a speed 400. i'm pretty sure there wasn't anything fancy (i.e. expensive) about it.

Wheels

Those wheels fall off. There are not attached. The plane is to belly in to land. Per the plan I have from Clancey.
