Default RE: free tailwheels

I have a 4*60 and have the rudder and tailwheel work together. When I first built the plane I was using a spring from the tail wheel assembly that was glued into the rudder. (I used a Sullivan Tail Wheel and it was one of the springs included) It was ok on days where the wind was mild. However, in windy days, the rudder was useless. I recommend having a direct wheel to rudder connection. It is less squirrelly when I am a low speeds during taxi. Same goes for my ultra stick 60 as well.
