    info on Sig Buster Kit parts

    Can anyone out there in C/L land tell me what the diameter of the wire landing gear on the Sig Buster is? Also, what size wheels should it run for a race?

    Chuck,
    http://brodak.com/control-line-parts...ding-gear.html check Brodaks selection of gear Item BG-1764, I have a Shoestring and found these to be very strong. The wire for that original kit was 1/8" dia. music wire......Order some 2" dia Glenn Lee wheels for it if your launching from pavement. This is for the Larger Buster with a 40 size engine. For a .15 size use the 3/32" wire. and 1 1/2 dia. wheel. Kert

    The SIG Buster probably used 3/32" wire for the landing gear. It was intended for 0.15 engines. 1 1/2" to 2" wheels, if you can find some very thin racing wheels so much the better. (Like Don's Wheels - looked like a pair of flat cymbals stuck together around the rim.) Could search on 'CL Racing' - there is a National CL Racing Association (NCLRA) site which might help. Those 2" Glenn Lee wheels might do real well for you.

    The approximately 40" Buster profile was originally a Carl Goldberg kit. Had a built up wing; fuse and tail were sheet and slab profile parts. It has been rekitted by several guys, after the CG kits fell away. This one is for .36 to .40 engines.

    Thanks for the come-back. I appreciate the info more than you can imagine. It ought to have been easy to find, but, well,... nothing is easy.
