Not my drone. Family friend who has an aerial photography business. He does a great job. This was only slapped together quickly. He is going to. Edit and has more content. We are looking for music suggestions...

I think the hydraulic pump is 200% oversized if just needed for steering, I wonder if an automotive style would be better suited. I know thereís been some discussion of hydraulic overheat recently.

Awesome drone footage!

It may be bigger than it needs to be. We just replaced with the same pump that was on it. Of course itís only steering now so there must be extra capacity. But itís steering like a dream at the moment. Even with a bent tie rod.

Little welding grinding class for the kids today.

New improved tie rod for final fit and paint. Will be installed with only one end locked per Sno Drifter.

Question will be if we need to remove any material to clear the transfer case?

Hopefully no.

I'm pretty new to this site. But I read enough to know you been here a while as Tucker someday. Congratulations I know it was a while coming. I have just 1 question. Will your name be changed to Tucker nowadays ?

I know what you mean about another I'm already looking to move up. From what I see of your machine it is already a couple jumps up from where I'm am so maybe I'm a Tucker someday also.

hope this helps shed some light on the procedure...for future reference... sorry about sideways pics...no matter how I do it Ö they hang a left at Albuquerque....
