Got my retracts in and working well. The main legs (as of right now) are too long and I would prefer a better AOA. Gonna shorten them and modify the wheel wells to account for the shorter leg. Got plenty of time with no good flying weather for at least the next week.
I use landing gear struts that were used for the SR-71&
F-117 Models. Gives me a nice AOA on takeoff. I had minor mishap
on Thanksgiving. Repairs have been made, pics forthcoming.
