When I bought my kit back in '97, there was a company sold ready-made maingear for the 1/3 Spacewalker.

I can't seem to find anything on them now.

Has anyone else heard of these? Are they still available?

I believe that Robart's Cub gear will work, with some modification to the airframe.

I am not aware of any product designed specifically for the 1/3 Spacewalker.

It was probably Bob Shatlaroe, but he has passed away and his fine products are no longer available

Ya, Don. You're probably right. Bob made great landing gear, and it would have been right up his alley to have one for the Spacewalker.

The Robart gear will work fine, just look at the dimensions in the web site. Should be about the same as the 1/3 cub

I was afraid of that.

I can make the gear from what's in the kit. I was just thinking lazy.

Actually, I'm pretty good at soldering being that I am a (retired) journeyman pipe fitter/plumber.

Recovering from this right now.


As soon as I get to full extension, the other knee is going under the knife/saw.

That was about a week after surgery, about a month ago. It looks (and feels) much better know.
