who makes a very thin tail wheel ?
( similar to the pylon racer wheels, turned aluminum with an O-ring for a tire)

.75 to 1" in diameter

Default RE: tail wheels who makes???

Shouldn't be too hard to fabricate yourself... A scrap of alu plate, drill a hole in it, chuck it in the drill press, use files and/or a dremel to cut to shape and finish... dig yourself up an O-ring from somewhere, and voila.
I've made plywood wheels that way... much lighter than alu...
The wheel IN rudder thing works well and is very clean, but it can put significant stresses on your rudder hinges... in the long run, they wont hold up. Ask me how I know

Other than that: Tru Turn has 1" alu wheels... they come in pairs though... at 19$ [X(] a pair...!
