    Airfield Sky Trainer Nose Gear Question

    I recently purchased this aircraft and should be receiving it on Monday.

    On the meantime I would like to have an idea of what should I do to avoid my nose gear from breaking as featured frequently.

    I see some people doing NOT what I would call a mod but just flat out changing the entire nose gear! Not what I'm looking for

    I want a stock look with the wheel pants, would it be possible? Can't I just fit a spring for some nose bounce?

    Thanks in advance for the input.


    PS: Here is the LINK for my exact plane.

    The factory nose gears is pretty strong unless you had a hard landing or els it good as is it.

    The only part that is an issue was the plastic steering arm. That was replaced with a Dubro 5/32 steering arm.

    hmm really? hopefully i have an updated model with a stronger nose gear because some youtube videos and reviews show the reality of the problematic nose gear
