Looking for thoughts opinions and photos if anyone has added a full swiveling tailwheel to their main skis. Currently refurb on a set of flilite c3000s.

thanks Jeff

so it turns easy by manpower on a scrubby surface?

Hmmm, never worried much about that. But, it’d be an engineering project to allow them to caster and retract....maybe.

That air glass 3000 on my friends C180 has a Scott 2000 on the back of each ski. Performance killer. Each one throws a rooster tail.

Unhook bungees/springs or a short ratchet strap from ski tail to rear gear fitting to lift back wheel up so it doesn't drag before manpowering it 90* to get back in hangar

I had this mentioned to me a few days ago. Sparked Idea. Yes it would take some engineering. The TW retract on the C3000 is 2hat makes them work.

I'd think a strap at the rear check cable attachments would pull the tails up but in my time with FliLites I never had any need to do anything. When the ground got soggy I'd lift the tail and walk it around.
