I've converted both of my trainers from rubber bands to bolts. The 1st was a Sr Telemaster, the other a USAircore Knight Hawk both of which were taildraggers.
It's not that difficult. While you have the wing under surgery, reduce the dihedral & wing incidence. I made up a new dihedral brace for the Sr Telemaster & converted to a 2-piece wing W/wing struts.
That Telemaster would do some crazy s*** W/an FA-150 on CDI in the nose.
Definately get rid of the tricycle gear!
For the steerable tail wheel just make a 2-piece elevator W/a wire "U" connector. Notch the elevators & run the rudder full width to the bottom. Then use a simple steerable tail wheel that connects to the rudder as in post #10.
