I've epoxied a rounded bump of plastic cutting board to the bottom as a skid. Trim back the covering and epoxy on. It seems to wear really well and is quick and simple. The only drawback is SWMBO catching you cutting up one of her cutting boards.

Hmm, Wonder what I can build from that shrapnel?

Since I got you going on this taildragger thing, here's an example. The pics are my Senior Telemaster, as a taildragger, of course.

The main landing gear was substituted for the dinky kit version. The tailwheel is of the spring steel type connected to the rudder with springs.

If you didn't care much about ground steering and think you have enough control with the rudder and wind over it, you could just leave the tailwheel to caster. IMO though, positive steering control is better than that.

Anyway, as the other guys have suggested, the main gear is mounted so that the axle shaft sits under the leading edge of the wing. You could move it forward a bit if you find that the holes to mount it would not leave you any room for bolts to pass by the bulkhead at the wing leading edge. That would also help to prevent nosing over while taxiing.

Just remember to hold up elevator while taxiig so that you get good ground control and don't nose over. Not too much power though or it'll take off. These Telemasters really don't need much power to take off.

Let us know how you like it once it's converted.
