Tony Hallo Thanks Joe but it wasn't that good. All in all a bad year so far, dinged up the landing gear on the Champ last time out, lost the Cherokee before that due a very stupid error on my part, took off in range test mode! A new 30% Cherokee is underway. 5 months ago

And the tail wheel, the spring is 1095 spring steel hardened and tempered. Duplicate of a Scott 3000 tail wheel used on the Champ. It's a heavy little thing. The wheel is 2" diameter.
