Default Bigger wheels for PZ Corsair.


Hi,

I would like to put bigger wheels on my PZ Corsair, so that i can land and take off from grass.

Please let me know which ones do you guys recommend, and also i am looking for the light weight wheels that i do not need to modify to fit the landing gear.

PLease advise.

Thanks in advance.

Zsultan, Dave Brown products Lite Flite wheels in both 2.5" diameter that looks close to scale and more streamlined formed 2.75" diameter size work very well on stock struts when located around 3/4 inch ahead of the wing leading edge. I spin my wheels with an electric drill and use coarse sand paper to shape the wheels.

HAPPY LANDINGS!

Hi mad web tv scientist,

Thanks for the response.

Do i need to get 2.25", 2.5" or 2.75" for Corsair? do i need to bend the landing gear forward? and also why do you need to shape the wheels?

One more thing, width of the stock wheel is approximately 15mm and the 2 1/4" Dubro or Dave brown wheels are 20mm in width. So, have to remove the piece of small black tube inserted on one end of the rod to avoid wheel rubbing the rod. How did you guys fit a 20mm wide wheel on the rod?

Please advise.


Thanks

Wheels from the Typhoon 2 are a better diameter and they look more scale, with spokes. I have them on mine.
