Default RE: 69" QQ Yak-54

I wound up putting the Saito 1.25 on mine. I'll let you know how it is after I put the maiden flight on tomorrow. As far as I can tell though, this engine is going to be plenty of power on this plane. I'm a touch above 8 1/4 pounds RTF, and I'm using an APC 16.5 x 5w prop spinning 93-9400 rpm's.

Now, I have an issue that maybe Reza can help me out with. It seems that my landing gear might have sneaked past QC. it seems to be over bent so to say. the wheels are pointing in since the curve in the gear goes too far. It really looks stupid like this, and it probably takes about 3 inches off the width of the gear. I can post pictures later.
