Thing is when landing I use sight, sound and touch. If a nitro guy is reving his motor in the pits constantly and I happen to be landing, I can't hear my planes motor/fan. Ya sure i can land with out sound, but it sure helps give a judgement on speed and where your motor/fan is at.

Yep searched HK but nothing the correct length or wheel size.

Tam Jets have some that you can cut the legs down but are expensive.

These are made by RCLander for the CMP F9F-8 Cougar. These are $79.99. We can Ship from the USA to Australia - US Postal Priority with tracking and proof of delivery would cost about $40 or you can get them directly from RCLander in China - maybe save a little on shipping from China to Australia

RCLander CMP F9F-8 Struts Listed Here

Hope that helps

Max,

When you expecting to get those wing fences in as a separate item?

Not sure what you are asking for that is different than the set shown - this set has 2 pc of Mains WITH trailing links as shown in the picture. The mains are installed with the tires facing inward, so that strut covers lay on the outside of the strut when retracted and the tires lay flush on the EDF Shroud (unlike pictures of the strut install showing wheels out from earlier posts in this thread)

The factory might set these sets up with the trailing links facing toward the rear. However, for scale you need the trailing links facing toward the front, so you simply reverse the tires and axles on each respective strut or we can do that for you before shipment

- this set is the same set that HK sells installed in their PNP version, made by RCLander specifically for this CMP Cougar

RCLander CMP F9F-8 Wing Fences as separate set Listed Here

2 pc set for $4.99

(Parts Orders over $20 have shipping included for ConUSA; Orders under $20 have a $3 postage fee)

International Shipping on this item is just to costly and extreme - without exception, we only ship International Orders using US Postal International Priority Mail with full Tracking and Proof of Delivery because of the many non delivery and lost packages to International Customers

- we suggest non USA buyers to Contact RCLander Factory Directly to save the high cost of shipping

Max,

I think he wants the wheels to be trailing as well as the links. That way the wheels are not straight down from the strut but rather sitting aft.
