Excellent work Hannes.
For anyone landing on a hard surface, the wheel upgrade is a must.
I have found the Sullivan nylon bushings capable of withstanding perhaps 5 landings before they begin to crack and fall apart.

Yes I say those are definitely very robust wheel hubs and bearing sets. Very similar to what we do in the larger jet airframes. I can see those lasting very well.
Also your modification to the elevator servo install, is the way most high end manufacturers' are making their designs now. Very direct and positive control. Great ideas all the way around Hannes. Might have to see about that wheel mod.

Very nice looking facility you have to fly from Hannes. How many are in your club that fly there.
