Question
Cessna nose landing gear

Hi guys,

I have been looking arround for quite some time now for a nose landing gear to suit my cessna planes. I have 3: Art-Tech 182 2.4 GHZ, SkyArtec 182 2.4 GHZ and Art-Tech 500 class. All of those I have just mentionned, have something in common: Poor nose landing gear design!
I am looking for a replacement that has a spring or something into it to absorve the landing weight or road bumps.

Can someone show me where to look for?
Thanks,
Edd!

It's just a plane.

I ended up using a combination of stock and dubro parts. I got the dubro 1/2A steerable nose gear set. It has a nice spring in it. I then sawed off the stock mount and put the durbo one in its place. I then used the stock collar and connected it to the dubro nose gear. It seemed to work pretty well. Unfortunately I turned my Cessna into a lawn dart and now I need a bunch of stuff to get her back into the air.
