Nose Gear

Posted on August 4, 2016 at 10:58am 6 Comments

Thinking of extending nose strut by about 2 inches for clearance in case of off road bungee failure.  I've got large mains and standard nose wheel.  Anyone else?  Input appreciated.  Cheers,,, Lynn

Wings, rudder and horizontal are done.  Screwed up the elevator (tip rib alignment) probably could have fixed it but would never be happy, scrapped it :>( , got some spare aluminum to use ;>)  Nothing another $400 can't fix.  We learn by doing, I hope.


Cheers,,,,,,,,,,,,  Lynn
