Your going to luv building from Nicks plans. They are very straight forward. I dont know your financial statis, but Sierra gear are the best, not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. I'd also recommend having them converted to electric by Down&Locked. These guys know what their doing and stand behind their product. This eliminates all air hoses, tanks, and fittings that can ruin your day. Nothing is 100% fool proof, but electrics are less prone to fail. I cant help you with the motor as I'm a gass engine guy, but if you change your mind, the DA-85, Quadra-75, Fox 5.8, or ZDZ-80. Any one of these would be an excellent choice and fly the Ziroli P-51 with authority.

i was looking into Lado Tech electric landing gears, i expect nothing on this build to be cheap and will build accordingly, will probably take a year or more to complete but am excited. thanks for the tips, will keep everyone informed and post pics as the build progresses.

Down and Locked are the best! They did my TF B-25 gear.

I don't think Lado make them for a 20lb + plane.
