V-Bat Flying Wing- Needs Landing Gear Ideas
Been a while since I've been on the Flying Wing threads. I wanted to solicite everyones help on this. I have just purchased the Thunder TIger V-Bat Flying Wing.
Specs: Wing Span: 60.25" (1530mm) Wing Area: 400 in2 (33 cm2) Weight: 4.8-5.2 lbs. (0.65 kg) Engine: .10
I DO NOT like to hand launch my wings especially this one since it is balsa and not my favorite Zagi (indestructable) foam. I really want to put some landing gear on this bad boy, but have no idea where to start. I need to be sensitive to the CG as I am putting a .15 on it instead of a .10, hense additional weight.
I would love retracts but static are fine as well. I have removed the covering and I have a balsa spar to work with. Any ideas pariculary pictures would be most helpful.
I thought I would ask the experts on the Groups before I went and did anything stupid.....

Well I got gear in, no retracts but static should be more than sufficient. They are in front of the CG, so tail heavy should not be a problem. My challenge now is to recover the wing. I tore off all the covering to get to the spar.

I just saw this thread and am getting ready to get my own v-bat flying wing. I like the idea of putting landing gear on it and not hand launching it. If anyone could please send me pics, instructions or just some guidance on how to go about it i would greatly appreciate it. My email is email@example.com if anyone could help.
