Default Typhoon Tailwheel Fix.

I don't know if you typhoon flyers like me were getting ticked off at your tailhweel falling off it's bracket everytime you land but i now have a simple solution. Take a t-pin you use for bulding kits and cut it in half leaving about half an inch of the point left. coat the point in epoxy and stick it on the side of the wire where the opening is. and it wll not slip off again.

Can you post a photo? I glued a small piece of a toothpick in the opening and wrapped it wth a thin strip of tape. It's been holding on for a while.
