    CX2 tricylce landing gear

    Here are some PICS of some simple tricycle landing gear that I made from 4 gauge wire and some Lexan. You could use model car wheels.

    RE: CX2 tricylce landing gear

    Looks like it would be a bit more heavy than stock. Is it?

    Not bad. Those wheels might look better painted black. How did you get them so round?

    Pretty neato Notasme,

    Hey, Rice,

    How's that C.F. outer and inner shaft working for You? I'm looking for ways to decrease weight in My heli's all the time and was just wondering.

    I've been away for awhile and haven't been able to answer posts, etc.
