The plan is to put these on my V2 JPower:
They're really incredibly nice and except for slightly small wheels are nicely sized for the 1400mm Lightning, and very well made especially for ~$15.
Kurt, Saw your notes on Z8's blog....I trust his reviews and yours too. Thanks for posting up here. Regarding those landing gear...they look really heavy. When you get them ...anyway you could provide the weight of the original and new landing gear??
