  • I've just switched from compression springs and chains to a direct steering rod. My issue is that it's possible to go over-center and lock the rudder full deflection; not good. I like your setup. Could you give me the dimensions of the tab you bolted to the tailwheel castor? Also, where did you get or how did you fabricate the actual rod that the rod-end bearings screwed into?

    Thanks so much; I really appreciate it. I'll let you know how it works once I finish it.

    I finished fabricating the control rod and bracket and did 10 high speed taxi runs yesterday; it worked great. It was a bit sensitive but I like the positive feel. Thanks again for the drawing and pics. I didn't realize the connection at tail-wheel had to be aft of the tail-wheel pivot point to prevent the over-center lockout. I could send you a picture in an email. Jon
