Where on the plans does it mention anything about the tailwheel and how to make it ? I've looked several times and haven't been able to find it yet.


Scott did a helluva job making his "Haigh" tailwheel... a little too advance for this builder. And a Scott 3200 is upwards of $2700.00 (is that right ???)... a little too pricey for this builder. There is a replacement for the Scott called an Alaskan Bushwheel for $1700.00 (if that's as cheap as they get I think I'm gonna vomit) I don't think the Raven will support the weight of this Raidal Skybolt.
