The welder finished my forward roll bellcranks. Brad is working on internals and such, and has made a first-article pneumatic tailwheel installation:
The first five bellcranks.
With the ball bearings, internal spacer, and end bushings installed. This is the one I'm sending to Brad for him to tool the support for the lower bearing.
The pneumatic tailwheel assembly, composed of the internal fender and the external fairing. The external fairing part will get drilled for the axle after assembly with the glider.
With the Monster Scooter Parts cheapie 200x50 wheel and tire assembly.
Bulkhead #3 and a forward floor support interstitial.
Locating the tailwheel cutout on the fuselage.
Measure twice, cut once.
Trial fitting. Looks nice.
Homebuilt aviation is not for folks who don't try things at home.
