Default RE: Looking for Corsair tail wheel build

Luke

I was hoping you could offer some clarity on how the steering mechanism and shock absorber are assembled.

For example, how do you make the wheel turn if the main larger tube is welded to the support frame? Are there some internal parts that keep it all together and prevent it from falling apart?

Is the shock absorber fuctional or is it more decorative? I see that the upper and middle frame sections are jointed at one pivot point. Does that mean that the top part is designed to move with the shock abosber or does the PC board material just flex?
