Default park flyers cessna 182 - Nose gear steerable?

Hi

I recently bought the park flyers cessna 182 4ch. For rolling take offs is it better with the fixed nose gear or has anyone tried a nose gear which rotates freely? Which one is better for ground control? I noticed it turns on ground only at higher speeds. Has anyone attached a servo or
somehow used the tail servo connection to steer the nose gear?

Pls advise.
Thanks

If you're at all unsure about your ability to land it safely, I would highly recommend going with fixed nose gear and don't worry about ground maneuvering; the plastic steering arm will be one of the first things to break on a hard landing, so save it for when you have your landings solid. This happened to my friend's Ultrafly Cessna 182, and we've had a heck of a time finding a replacement steering arm of the right size.

My landings are great now - How do I make the nose gear steer with ease? How did you guys do it?

I am also wondering?. Could you use this??:::http://www.hstore.com.au/hstore.asp (Search DUBRO ACC' and type in
the SEARCH box-- Steerable Nose Gear. There are about 4 options.
They may be to big but I'm not sure.???[sm=confused.gif][sm=confused.gif][sm=confused.gif][sm=confused.gif]
