Nice taxi videos, I would carefully check toe in/out in relation to longitudinal axis; I basically used a straight edge against stub wing fittings to eyeball tire tread relation. Also used an automotive 'toe' bar device from wheel to wheel; Dubois airport reminds me of Driggs, ID where I worked for close to 17 years..!Hey Dom, The feeling I get from the Jungster and it may be largely due to the pushrod operated rudder is the there is no friction in the system and the rudder is too light, and there fore very little feel. It also wants to pull to the left. If I relax for more than a few tenths of a second it wants to head off the left at an increasing rate. Feels worse in the cockpit than the videos show. It has to be a gear track issue. One thing that I think will help is to add some artificial feel to the rudder. If I can add some springs to either side to make the rudder stiffer I think it will help. Maybe adding them to the tailwheel steering hornsView attachment 117089 and attaching them to the airframe somehow would accomplish this. Any ideas?
A little toe-out on l/s isn't so bad, I would think having push/pull rods makes steering very sensitive, not like lo tension cables; grass strip at Driggs wasn't much to speak of- quite bumpy if not scraped regularly but way more forgiving than asphalt; I worked as 1 of A&P lA's at Teton Aviation Center, til I got tired of 6 month winters.. Jungster1 I bought sight unseen had serious problems thru out including frozen gear springs, toe-in about 5 degrees each, no cylinder compression, and a myriad of others, mostly all resolved but still a work in progress..Adding rudder feel won't fix the track issue but it may give some resistance to help dampen things. Sort of the same technique used by the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels flying close formation, to add about 40 pounds nose down trim to give your arm some constant pressure to work against in order to smooth things out. Sounds weird but it works.
