Default BalsaUSA 1/4 Cub and Robart Landing gear

I got the landing gear after I covered the plane now the wing struts are right where the gear needs to be. I you have been there tell me what you did. If I go behind the struts my wheels will be about 1 inch behind where it should be. I think that would be bad.

I moved the strut mount location to just ahead of the rear landing gear mounts, leaving the gear where they should be.

I mounted the strut mount directly under the rear gear mount, that's where it is on the real plane, It might not make that much of a difference if your not building scale, mine is. First pict. is a real one, second is mine.
