Can you list the width where it attaches to the fuse. You say this is homemade but it cost you $150, could you explain please.

landing gear

chuck bought this from an add he saw in a magazine. He can't remember from who. I posted it as home made to show it was not a Robart kit.
The front bracket measures 7 1/8 wide, the rear is 6 5/16 wide.
measured 6 1/4 front to back. We sold the 1/4 scale air plane kit but not the gear
it is bolted together with cap screws and lock nuts

the rear bracket is flat metal could be easy to rework for your application. the mount holes are 5 1/8 on center but could be drilled any where across bracket

thanks for looking butch

The gear is sweet. I just wish it was cheaper.

It looks like the Bill Wallace gear...........Bill was building 3 or 4 sizes of cub gear and was always back logged with orders. His gear was very high quality. Since his passing, the tooling and equipment for building the gear was sold and the new owners immediately upped the price of the gear to about $150 shipped.
FYI
