    Douglas Lee Looking for information on where to buy a foot throttle assembly that will be easily adaptable to the Tukan square tube nose wheel design. Or a simple home made foot throttle. The design in the Kemmeries Tukan plans requires quite a bit of cutting and welding which I would like to avoid if there is something off the shelf I can purchase and bolt on or a simple fab and bolt solution. Any advice appreciated.

      Douglas Lee My question wasn't about what brand to buy. It was about tread type. Ribbed or smooth. I have pretty much decided to go with smooth due to less chance of picking up trash and hitting the prop.

      Rizwan Bukhari OK, i meant to say aero trainer brand ribbed tires. i used them on my last trike with the recommendation from Trike pilots in our group and i liked them.

    Douglas Lee If there is a classified section on this forum I'm not seeing it. Can't find a button to push or way to navigate to it. It's probably staring me in the face so it will be embarrassing when someone tells me how to access it.

About

I was a BFI weight shift & 3 axis under the old ultralight rules but haven't flown in about 15 years and am now wanting to get back into it. I'm building a Tukan under FAR Part 103 rules. I built one years ago that I used for instruction but now just want to be able to get into the air from time to time with no passenger to worry about and the ability to repair and modify without the governments involvement.
