Question

Is it possible to shorten oleo legs?


Hi everyone,
I was wondering if it was possible to shorten the oleos on some twist n turn electric retracts? Preferably without breaking them

An itch?. Scratch build.

It's one of those, 'it depends ...'

Not all retracts are the same, likewise oleo legs.

I have shortened an oleo leg in the past, if I remember right it involved a fair amount of work, cutting filing and drilling.

First thing would be to take a leg out of the retract and see what you need to do.

Loads of pictures on HobbyKing of oleos.
