My bad, that last pic is Austin's first Byron Hellcat. Here is number two which was even better, IMHO.

Maddog, I have the 100 degree in my proto and they fit perfect....

Jeff,

What did you use for a tailwheel in your bird?

Hey Maddog...how goes it?

I used a Robart tail wheel unit for my proto, but after having installed it I got this beautiful tail wheel from Earl Aune. It really is something!

My company Robcon is working on a 1/4 Hellcat composite airplane.
Landing gear is developed by Darryl at sierra giant.

Sounds great Mosquito...at 1/4 scale she will definitely have an impression in the air! And IMHO Darryl's gear are the way to go.

Best of luck with your project!
