It needs some raised letter tires and a checked racing stripe.

That or a revver's logo on the door.

Funnier yet is I bought and rigged it specifically to be my Delta Dolly! I am gonna try it...Looks like fun anyhow.

I have my Augered Rossi-60 and APC 10x10 on this Phenom so I do not think a hand launch would suffice.

RE-SOLVED

Giant Aeromaster with Walker 3.2... [)]

Remove the wings, set your plane on the cabanes and go for launch.

Dolly can be taxied back to the pits under it own power!

Nice Crazy! You Crazy! LOL

I will try the plastic dump-truck next time there is no-one at the field....Or maybe at the next Revver's thing-

Here is the Dolly I made based on Cobratraxxas delta dolly design. (Mine is probably not as nice but I had 1/2 of the stuff....)

It sure is! That is where I measure my pipe stuff. Not to the widest part of the pipe but to the DENT in the pipe-

Hey FASTCRASHER, actually I have not....I am hoping to get out for a couple hours this weekend... I tested it in the drive-way but it is like a bad shopping cart, it turns right pretty hard- I need to make some bends I think before a take-off roll.

I have always wanted to get something reliable since one person hand launches are a challenge even for trimmed out aircraft. CObratraxxas had good luck with his so I thought I would throw one together.

I will keep you posted!

LOL- I got pretty sick this past week so nothing...

I know the system works because Cobratraxxas has one that he has used a bit. I modeled mine loosely after his.

If you have an extra $70, get the UT for the K&B-48

Sweet!

Why does it have to be steerable? I do not see a servo or anything, does the front wheel assembly just caster?

Why steerable? do these things ever go straight? Engine torque? The tail fits in the slot ant the rudder goes in the tail wheel bracket... Works very well.
