The main problem with the gear is that they are actually too thin for scale and in the case of the extended gear on the actual heli, they are too wide. You don't see too many "E" model 500's with short stubby gear but it may be something to investigate. The tall gear are set to hold the boom fairly level and hence they hold the body level for passenger comfort (they don't care about the pilot as he is supposed to know what is going on, lol). PM me with this dimension: Ground to bottom of the body in the middle between the front landing gear. Then I can help work out what would be the proper height. Who knows, they maybe right on the money as they sit. Thanks for the compliments and let's see if this can be sorted out. Take care.
