I used the same idea but use the large pool noodle on the hand truck rails perpendicular not horizontal like you. I like your idea so it will be filed for "next time" when I run out of pool noodle.

salty: why not slice the noodle in halves and glue the flat side to the surface? Or maybe more a tangential cut but flat enough to still glue? I don't know if your prefer this idea or not but for me, the perpendicular arrangement is more stable.

Looks good for hard surfaces but did you test it in loose sand?

 

Also, how is the ground clearance from the bottom of the frame? Looks minimal for the sandy conditions.

RI2B: I'll give all of the maiden flight info when I use it this WE. However, your observations are probably true for lower performance in the sand, My end of the island, it's pretty stoney with pebbly sand.
