FT Bushwacker build! My third FT plane!

@CrazyFastFlying I would be interested in seeing how you installed the steerable tailwheel. The tailwheel is my last thing I have yet to finish.
I have been building my Bushwacker recently too and it seems that we have been at the same stage throughout the build. I even got the same lights as you! Also, are those the 4.5 inch tundra tires? they look smaller than I was expecting.

There is an article on flitetest.com about a bunch of mods/upgrades you can do to your bushwacker. He tells you exactly how to in stall a steerable tail wheel. https://www.flitetest.com/articles/ft-bushwacker-essential-mods-cub-style-upgrades (It's kind of hard to explain it in one short post.)

Here are the links to the steerable tail wheel and the tires I got.

Me Bushwacker, its not as bad as it looks, just a small scratch, it flow really good , but me 2 servos on me ailerons, did not like each other, so it crashed, but while it was flying, it went well, so, now digging out servos and replacing them, have tested these new ones, together, and they, work, the extre weight done the job,

My bushwacker flew for 30 seconds. It was floaty and also a bit tail heavy. The motor could handle a bigger prop then what I had on it, and it still burned up. It pancaked out in taller grass. I tried one other attempt but it gained about 10 feet then snapped and dove
I was that vid... So it wasn't the battery then? What motor/prop combo were you using?
