Looking to replace the gear with something a little stronger while I work on honing my skills on the sim. I feel sure some great ideas are forthcoming. Best of luck with your project.
The gear shouldn't be weak, if they are the plane is either over weight, or you are landing too hard (read not flaring at touch down).
