There are other threads on the wheel subject, sorry I don't know where but it's worth a search.

My son produced some 3d printed wheels for me and I stuck 10mm neoprene onto them as tyres

Don't knock the lack of scale details, I'm just enjoying the rebuild of a very old airframe and

hopefully one day I'll get it to fly !             SC 52 2 stroke, home made cowl

A.A.A.D.D.- DOES ANYONE RECOGNIZE THESE SYMPTOMS ?


"AGE-ACTIVATED ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER"

THIS IS HOW IT MANIFESTS:

I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and
decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that
I brought up from the mail box earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can
under the table, and notice that the can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the
garbage first...

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take
out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my cheque book off the table, and see that there is only one
cheque left.
My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house
to my desk where I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the Pepsi
aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The Pepsi is getting warm, so I decide to put it in the refrigerator
to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, a vase of flowers on the
counter catches my eye -- they need water.

I put the Pepsi on the counter and discover my reading glasses that
I've been searching for all morning.
I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to
water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with
water and suddenly spot the TV remote.
Someone left it on the kitchen table.

But then I realize that tonight when I go to watch TV, I'll be
looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen
table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,

But first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it
spills on the floor, so, I set the remote back on the table and get
some towels and wipe up the spill.

THEN, I HEAD DOWN THE HALL TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT I WAS
PLANNING TO DO.

AT THE END OF THE DAY:

THE CAR ISN’T WASHED,

THE BILLS AREN'T PAID,

THERE IS A WARM CAN OF PEPSI SITTING ON THE COUNTER,

THE FLOWERS DON'T HAVE ENOUGH WATER,

THERE IS STILL ONLY 1 CHEQUE IN MY CHEQUE BOOK,

I CAN'T FIND THE REMOTE,

I CAN'T FIND MY GLASSES,

AND I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT I DID WITH THE CAR KEYS.

THEN, WHEN I TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHY NOTHING GOT DONE TODAY,

I'M REALLY BAFFLED BECAUSE I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY,

AND I'M REALLY TIRED.

I REALIZE THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM, AND I'LL TRY TO GET SOME HELP FOR IT.

DON'T LAUGH -- IF THIS ISN'T YOU YET,

YOUR DAY IS COMING!

For some time I've had an old used Puppeteer to rebuild, and noting the "cut fuselage" ideas on here which would enable the wings to stay rigged, I've been playing. The most awkward part was making the forward servo tray (for balance purposes) as when the two halves slide together the 45mm approx. movement to fix them gives very little space. Also, thanks to the Thingyvers people, my son as been able to produce 3d printed wheels for me

Hi Murat. Coincidentally a friend of mine is building one at the moment, like you from an old un-started kit

We have the instructions etc, what information do you need ?

Will the weight of the glow plug be enough to put it back on it's trike wheels ?

…………..and what about the strength of the butchered engine mount ?

…………..nah, don't think I'll bother with that one
