Need a .25 size high wing tail dragger, ideas?


Hi everybody, I am looking for a .25 size high wing tail dragger arf. The problem is I can only find tricycle set ups. Does anybody know where I can buy one from or have any suggestions? It has to be an arf, I currently don't have time to build a kit.

You can leave the nose gear off and move the rear landing gear forward. You determine where you want the gear to be at and cut out the balsa and glue in a plywood mount for the landing gear. Then glue in some triangle stock on the inside of the fuse to help reinforce it. The drill the holes and mount the landing gear.
A good location is about in line with the leading edge of the wing or slightly back.

That's what I'd do. Not a very difficult mod. you could really just cut out the existing block, notch the fuse further up to accomodate the gear, epoxy it in with some reinforcement and patch the hole that it leaves where it was originally located. With the proper tools and a couple small pieces of covering it could be done in under an hour, minus time for the glue to dry.
