Sure looks nice wear your at its cold and snowy here. I started to get mine back in shape. I had some bent strut pins and damaged front strut. Lookin forward to getting mine back in the air. I plan on putting a cortex gyro in it.

.....cold and snowy.......
Well I live in the mountains of Western Colorado, it would be freezing and light snow here too!
The actual flying was done during my semi annual visit to Mesa, Az the week before the Arizona Jet Rally. Nice long runway and much lower density altitude for maiden.

You could try Ed Dobias RC Crafters for the Skyray nose strut. His is custom work and will be a few more $$$, but the quality is excellent. I have a set of his Mirage mains for a JHI Mirage and they are great quality (no offshore pot metal), and quite scale.

This gear set was built for Chris Wolfe who is building an old Frankel kit.
