Plug, no. It is not actually powered but mechanical. If you look under the files, you will see a couple different installation diagrams showing you several ways on how to make it work with the rudder, so that when the rudder is moved, it will also turn the wheel.
Hi, is there anyone that can show me a few pics or schema of what is the best way to mount this?
To fit it correctly into my airplane should I bend the 55 mm wire to have the correct angle? (size based on the Jhon-Jhon schema http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uploads/391 992796X100667X5.pdf)
Should I add a "fin" in the bottom of the plane to support the tail wheel at a correct angle?
The "long" wire (55 mm) must always be parallel to the rudder, right?
Should the "long" wire be glued inside the rudder?
Hello..sorry i dont have pics.. if the rudder u have an angle so, u can bend the 55mm wire to that angle(yes u can glue it OR u can bend a small part to fit it inside the rudder)
NO, u dont need a fin because it have a screw to fitting on a plane.. yes it could be straight if the rudder is straight .. i hope this help you ..
There are two main ways to apply this fitting. First, in line with hinge axis of rudder. Mount so that wire shaft is in line with hinges and trim off excess or bend to right angle and insert into rudder to turn wheel. If trimmed right back, use control arm in line with bottom of rudder. Insert a pin in the rudder which will fit through the arm and turn the wheel. Second, mount assembly as convenient and trim off excess shaft wire after mounting the control arm to act as a horn. Carry a sna
lpinho, happy to see that my drawing are useful,
As Hussain and Oldfartflyer suggest, I did a few schema of installation for you, the file is " example to install", I will delete after.
If the pivot are not align, better a pin instead of a "fin", because the pin need to slide in the slot of the bracket.
Hope it help you!
Hello,, Yes it sits securely.. If you can see the upper plastic catch the wire pin by The Small Hex-Screw...In advice buy one package of Hex-Screw and its screw-driver for safety(if will be wear per time..)
If it were a firm fitting, the resistance to rotation would hinder servo operation. I would call it a bit sloppy. Careful adjustment of the fitting will prevent this from being a big issue. If it does present a problem, fill the shaft with epoxy and redrill to exact spec when set - no more wobbles then! Alternatively, drill out oversize and glue in some teflon tubing as a bushing.
It is a nicely made device* I like the design better than what I could find locally. On the other hand, waiting is dreadful to me - I'm an impatient sort. HKs hardware is so much more reasonable that I try to keep a supply on hand before I need it - that way I'm not waiting.
Yes it can fit in as long as its a powered glider or a sailplane, the only thing you got to take care is the centre of gravity cos wingspan of 2 meter long may give you very good aspect ratio but will definitely cause problems if they aren't properly connected at centre of gravity with respect to the landing gear.
Yes it is . the part facing to the rear of the wheel, i.e the straight piece goes to bottom of the rudder - rudder has a pin ( I make a pin from spring steel that I put into rudder ) . This is the only tail wheel assembly that I use on my 2X2 F3a planes
The tail wheel assembly is in stock now. I have ordered some already. When they say that stock is updated regularly it means that the goods are coming in according to demand and the time that is required for them to be available depends on the number of orders. They also update the days that remain until they become available.
