Landing Gear Assembly

Landing Gear Assembly


First off guys/gals, we will be starting off by assembling the landing gear. If going by the pictures provided in the manual, or whats on the box, you might either get confused or think you are missing some parts. Relax, they are all there. Starmax decided to make some changes to the gear, but why? Perhaps how they had it in the manual it was too weak. Who knows, but whatever the reason, they made it better.

I've added my comments to the photos to facilitate a quicker assembly of the plane. Have fun and if you have any questions, please ask. We will be more than happy to help.

I had mine in one and a half weeks from date of order, but with the Chinese holidays, I'm not sure when they will be back in the office over there at Starmax.

I still can't get over the detail of this plane. I have a Supercub I inherited from a friend but this is making me want to stop on the restoration and just get this instead. I love all the rigging and detail.

Orion. The detail on this is phenomenal compared to other planes priced in this range. I mean serious, $139 for the PNP is simply amazing. I really like the fact that it has windows all around. And its not just thin plastic sheeting. Its actually a quite rugged one piece of heavy duty plastic that makes up the entire cockpit/canopy section.
