Default RE: free tailwheels

ORIGINAL: khlash

No I'm Not giving them away..heh i have a question...

How well does a tailwheel thats free to spin (i.e. not directly connected to the rudder) work? Ive a 60 size Ultrastick and I was wondering if the air over the rudder only would be enough to steer properly. This would be on both grass and on a runway.
I did this very thing on my 40 sized US. I went with a simple free castering tailwheel and it worked great! I only fly off of grass so I cannot comment on how well it will work on pavement...
