HI I know that some has installed fixed landing gear on their T33. Including a Steerable nose wheel. But I did an archive search and came up empty? Can anyone help me? All help is appreciated.
Thanks Joe

Check the e-zone articles. Robert Wagoner wrote one a couple of years ago One of the first EDF colunms also check his web page I thinks he has instructions there also. Here is the link.

Instead of using one servo in the nose for the nose steering, I connect it direct to the alieron servo.
It works great & no extra servo or wieght!
Just have to get use to seering with the ailerons on the ground.

What wheels are pictured in that article. I may want to try the LG mod and those look just about perfect for the task.

I am using klett tailwheels, they are light and look like reall plane wheels with rubber tires and plastic rims. 1 inch diameter for the nose wheel and 1 1/2's for the mains, they look much cooler than the Dave Browns and weigh about the same.
