On the landing gear.

I'm still having issue with the right side being weak.

Before I order a new set I wanted to know if any has had luck making a set out of piano wire?

Thanks.

Andre.

Prop & gear update

Rebent the landing gear.
I'm going to see if I can use my mig welder to run a small bead and hold the bend.

Other wise I did confirm a 5mm piano wire will work. So I can make a new set of struts or buy some I guess.

The spinner still needs a bit more work on the bench grinder.
Have to open up the holes to fit the new MS 13x8 prop.

BTW I did have to use my drill to open up the shaft hole on the prop.

Last thing I did was removed all the weight from the cowl.
With my lightest 4S 2650 up to the forward bulk head it still balances out.
Or at least I think. Hoping this will reduce my nose over issues.

More to follow

Flaps

Didn't do the split flaps and only boo is I wish I'd see that white spar before I positioned the servo. I could have seated them lower.

Oh well.
