Smartmodel cnc landing gear for airwolf

I saw an old thread on this landing gear for 500 Airwolf http://www.smartmodel.com.hk/product...5&third_id=196

Has anyone brought them or used them?

This is the link to the old thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1028910 But not a lot of feedback on it.

We produce them, and as they are simple and reliable there's just isn't much to say about them !

Ok fair enough, have you a picture of all the parts you supply in the kit?

Hey
I ve bought them for my airwolf project.
They are great.
Unique Lock mechanism
Its a complete set front and rear landing gear,
It replace the whole stock landing gear system, except the rods.
Its best to use brass ones instead of carbon. They are more stiff.

Only thing you need to do is to file the front "wheelhole" in a symetric shape



See this threat for the mounting on my wolf:

Great work there Poolcrack, thanks for the heads up on the landing gear!
Does it come with the wood mounting pack? And from what I can tell the front retract comes with the steel rod, but the back wheels use the carbon rod which you replaced with brass?

So where's the flight video of yours???

yes it comes with a wooden mounting pack
And yes, with a steel rod at the front.
Only the rod at the rear you need to replace into brass ones

My flight video does not exist yet.
Very busy last months and financial issues. Ive change the side guns into real laserguns
also the head I am working on it to make it FBL. The system I already have, only the head not yet (i2 head)
You can see the build at Helifreak > scale helicopters > super airwolf building

Or At this link:
