Default RE: Great Planes Escapade .40 ARF

Sounds a little confusing. If the Post broke or was lost, I'd be tempted to only replace the Post. If the Bushing broke, that could explain for poor tracking of the tailwheel. The Dubro tailwheel bracket or the Sullivan appear to be good upgrades. I kind of like the Sullivan, I've used one on an Avistar that I modified to a taildragger. Also those who do stick with the stock or upgrade, make sure the retainer holding the tailwheel is secured with some CA. RC Ken lost his tailwheel on the first flight because the retainer didn't hold.
