I built one ,but I wrecked it ,stupid me , I built it an used a o-way diff spool
up front in which canceled out the front brakes causing a high speed out
of control when I used the brakes ,it slid an hit a parked car at full speed.

It hit so hard that it destroyed the ESC!...

if that part was for me.. its just the little arm/collar combo piece i need to replace to get back to flight attempts... i dont know if that aluminum t25 one cb posted earlier would actually work or not.. when i was looking at the specs on them things before they seemed alot bigger than what was in it...

That horn that I showed was for a servo ,that was before I knew what you need!

You will need a nose gear horn ,which dustybumpers mentioned to check Dubro's products earlier in the thread.
Dubro is a leading company that makes aircraft hardware ,an they have
those nose gear horns in any size!

You will need to know the size of the nose gear you have ,weather it
be 4mm ,5mm or 1/16 or 1/8 size!....
