Landing Gear Ideas

Wildweasel contributed this:

"A neat and strong method is to form an 'x' out of cf tubing, the centre point is in the fuse, bound with thread and glued and then supported by ply. The top 'arms' of the x are mounted to the underside of the wings with little ply discs and then small lengths of piano wire are bent to the right shape and glued into the other ends of the tubing to form axles. This is really strong as the UC is supported by three mounting points and provides struts/braces for the wings too.

If any of y'all reading this have other ideas for landing gear, please PM them to me."
