I thought of having a single small tail wheel.
It would go with the plane theme.

However, I'm just too O.C.D. over the additional rolling resistance.

As far as your pantograph idea, I remember you mentioned it when I started this project.

The problem is weight and cost.

I'll still look into it.

BTW, the drawer slides I was using had 24 " of travel, and I stacked one above the other, so that the first extended, and then the top one extended.
They are rated at 100 lbs + IIRC.
