I was not happy with the geometry of the stock gear mounts, so I decided to dig into the wing and modify them. At the same time I switched to gear made for the Anderson LA-7 that has a more scale length and additional power.

I had uncover the wing and add some new structure. It wasn't that hard to do, but it took a while. I didn't even bother removing all of the old mount. Just cut some of it out of the way. This photo shows the new position in relation to the stock. By changing the angle I'll be able to get the gear much farther forward and it will still fit into the bay.

The end result pulled the wheels forward a couple inches.
