Avid tricycle gear

Here is the connections for the Bandit tricycle gear (front steering).  Might mention I tried to use weaker springs to make the steering easier, but the weaker springs allow the wheel to lock up at extreme right or left.  Need the heftier springs to pull it back to center. Live and learn.  The bolt going through the center tube was the one that broke in half.  Replaced with an AN4-32 bolt and have had no further problem.  Still keeping a close watch, though.

I had this setup.  Checking the through bolts was part of every pre-flight, as they were undersized for the task and would bend and had to be replaced occasionally.

I also put a skid under the tail and kept the nose up or as light as possible always.
