Thanks! I don't care for the looks of the gear in the air, and it flies better without the extra drag and weight, so I always hand launch and belly land our T-28's. I applied a few coats of water based polycrylic to the belly and lower cowl to protect the paint and foam from grass rash.

One of my greatest satisfactions is a picture perfect smooth landing and gentle roll out to a stop.
So my gear will always stay on. Also I spend an hour or more balancing each propeller, so I am not about to break one because I do not have wheels.

If I didn't hand launch and belly land I would hardly fly at all, our only plane capable of ROG and landing on its gear without nosing over on the field we fly from is our Visionaire. So I've not ever had the pleasure of a gentle roll out. Even belly landing, some are better, and more satisfying, than others. Unless you're running 3 blades or more, belly landing on grass does not damage props if throttle is off before touching down, they always rotate to get the blades out of the way. I've yet to damage even one.
