    Maybe one of us forgets the rippage? That would be wrong.

    Ed/Trev;

    Got started yesterday on mine, made some good progress. This thing is a work of art and crazy light, that being said it's maybe too light in some areas. AKA tailwheel plate, whats the verdict on any improvement here before it rips off likes Ed's did and a bunch of others???

    I laid some glue inside best I could thru the rear stab openings.

    Solution may be to go without a tailwheel... just added weight anyways!

    good idea, being that I didn't listen to your advise to begin with and bought the zdz single for up front, trying to save weight anyways so maybe popsicle stick is way to go!!!! Will balance better! Thanks Trev

    I read that too, kinda looks like the kuza and ef tailwheel are same in one?!?!?! I have a white rose but was gonna use that on the 105 laser
    I'll check out lornes

    Did your tail wheel rip out on harder landing or tail touch?

    The good ole steel leaf springs work awesome for my hamfisted style of landings. I always seem to mess up those fancy carbon fibre ones and pop bearings out of those rose ones. Maybe i should let someone else land for me
