I was flying the F27C this morning and crashed it again. I'll try something with the plane, and when I pull it off, I'll try to push it farther, and sometimes it bites me. Luckly, I have a large open field, so the only risk is to the plane. Damage was pretty severe. Ripped about a 3rd of the left wing off, bent up one of the rudders, and broke the nose. In ten minutes I got it glued back together and sorted out. But, since it was already beat up I figured I would install a landing gear. I always wanted a landing gear on a Stryker, but never got around to it with the F27B. Plus I think the F27B was not strong enough to take off from the ground.
Here it is. The gear is heavily reinforced so it should hold together. The nose wheel is not steerable, but will be when I get a new airframe some day.
