Nose wheel steering

Ive got a three channel transmitter, but i would still like to be able to have nose wheel steering. Can i hook it up to the ailerons on the A-10 and/or Islander?

Yes, you may use the extra pc of piano wire to link the nose wheel steering. The servo always has enough thrust to do the job.

But, make sure this addtional link will run smoothly.

On my A-10 I found there is really enough wieght on the nose of the plane to really hold it down for the wheel to get a good hold on the gound and when turning at allmost any speed it wouldd just skid and not turn the plane so I just made mine fixed into plane not sure about the islander as I dont have that plane YET its in the mail hehhe
