Works well
15 May 2021  | 

Bought this to save the constant nuisance of keeping my tailwheel up to pressure with a heavy "turbo tail". It takes a bit of effort to pull the split hub together (longer temporary bolts are useful) but when fitted provides similar resilience to a firmly pumped up tube/tyre. It does weight about 0.5kg more, so you need to do a Weight & Balance recalculation (added about 2kg to my min cockpit).

Puncture proof tyre

If it does what it should, it'll be good.
The 200x50 is 600g heavier than a pneumatic tyre and tube. I found it impossible to fit onto the rim out on the airfield - had to bring it home and find a way to compress the two halves of the rim together. Otherwise, the bolts weren't long enough to get the nuts started.
