RE: us aircore
On the Power Cart., do you still install the front wooden block for strength/support, or exclude it completely?
My landing gear mod. for the Trainer 40 will work well to install the main gear to the fuse as you described (I'll probably use 2 3/4 inch wheels up front), but what should I look out for on the tailwheel? Do I still use a 1" wheel, 1/16 wire, and the supplied plywood brace? Yes, it looks like the brace could use a perpendicular wedge above it.
When you order the plane at Tower, they suggest getting a "flexible" pushrod. My only guess is that it's for the throttle servo, so you can install it upside down like the other two (contrary to what the manual shows). If there's enough room on top to use a solid one, why not do it the regular way?
Since it's only my second plane, I was thinking of keeping the wing the normal longer way (the gentler/easier flight the better).
It's strange they never updated the manual with real photos (like they eventually did for the Trainer 40).
I hope you don't mind all the questions. I have yet the find links to a detailed build online.
