Dag,
Your work is astounding. Those speakers and amp that you have in the nose are gonna make the sound system COOK!! I know because I've played the sound board through my surround sound at home.

Yes it well

Looks like things are going to happen a bit faster. I got a ton done over the weekend and I am going to need to get all the wiring installed soon.

I wish I could have found wheels that are just a bit bigger, but no luck.

Thanks, DAG

How big do you want....I know of some that are big but pretty expensive (about $79.95 per wheel)...but I would have to find the link...

Edit...check this page for links...

Hi Dag: SDS Hobbies carries the same wheels up to 8.5", but theres a problem! The price is outlandish!!
I have purchased the exact same wheels in 5" from HobbyKing at $12/pr. SDS is asking almost $22each for the same set. Unfortunately HK doesn't carry any bigger in this model.
Caviat emptour, I suppose. A little research might reveal the actual mfg, so far I've had no luck. Doug B

I am sure that Dag will be back soon. His work schedule has been, what I would call nasty, then science projects for his project manager, Emma.

The wheels on the plane now are 6", just wish I had 10". 8.5" would not have really made much of a difference

Thanks Buddy.

For 10" wheels I keep thinking a wheel barrow wheel or cart would work if you could find a light one that would almost look right and fix it up

For something that big, in order to be light, you almost need to make your own. There are a lot of "how-to" articles out there, using line for spokes and tubing (radiator hose for something this big?) for the tires. I know Dag would have the skill, my guess is the real problem is finding the time...Pete M

Wheels


Was poking around for some wheels and spotted these 9.33" @ $70 a pair. I have to say that the description doesn't fill me with confidence that they'll be up to the job and I can't vouch for the reliability of the retailer, but I thought I might as well post them up anyway.
