Replaced to case-hardened wire


Hi all
I've been enjoying AT-6 TEXAN.
I flew my TEXAN a few dozen times.
Several months ago, I replaced main gear from stock ones to case-hardened wire ones.
I noticed one of the biggest problem is weak main gears. Except touched it down perfectly, its main gearís steel wire were bended easily in unwanted way. I decided to replace with case-hardened main gears that were made by a domestic iron factory. Their price is near to a brushless motorís one. It sounds too expensive though, Iím very satisfied with them. They have never been vent, even in a rough landing, not crackup.
After then my AT-6 has always fine landings.

Continuing my modification.
