sidecar wheel position

I've looked up sidecars on google and found lots of information for sidecars on vehicles that have front steering only in which case the sidecar wheel tends to be positioned parallel to somewhere between the midpoint and the rear of the vehicle, however if the vehicle has both front and rear steering would the sidecar wheel be best positioned parallel to the exact midpoint or not?

How would I build an inexpensive sidecar for my electric bike ??

My electric bike is too heavy for me. I would like to add a sidecar, so I wont keep falling down on it. How would I do this ?

Does anyone have a plan for a BMX sidecar? I have seen one on Fantasy Factory that tilts with the main bike.?

I have seen one on Fantasy Factory that tilts with the main bike. Also it appeared to be a bolt on unit.

3 wheeler small radio control unit help please

I am adapting a 1:6 scale motorcycle and sidecar for one of my GI Joe/Action Man figures.     I would like to put a 3 wheel radio control unit in the sidecar base so that when attached to the motorcycle it drives the combination.     I expect someone has made or adapted a 3 wheeler for this type of use but I can't find one anywhere.     Any help will be very much appreciated.    I've attached a picture of the motorcycle to show some of the upgrades I have already made (the lights are LEDs with an on/off switch in the side panel and coin cell in the pannier).    Thanks for looking, Bern

quick release tripod plates

So for a few years now i've been using a small speaker setup strapped onto the tail of a longboard skateboard to provide music at skate meets and fun bike rides etc, and it's worked well enough, however at 13kg on the highest point of the board it has a tendancy to flop into corners and mess with the handling. Recently the amplifier broke so i want to use this opportunity to redesign the whole setup... for a start im hoping to reduce the weight by about 5kg i found this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAI5W6AgSYg) on youtube of a skateboard sidecar for a child which i intend to modify for the speakers but i don't want it permanently attached to my board, would 1 or 2 quick release tripod plates have the strength to keep the mechanism attached to the board until i wished to remove it? i know you can get plates to support some particularly heavy cameras so would there be one that would be up to my task?
