Default GP Supersportster 60

Looking forward to build. Can I use preformed alum. landing gear,( my landings sometimes are hard) Also, would it be too much motor to put a Super-Tigre .75 ( I have one just waiting) I figure if I get the CG right it wouldn't matter. I don't have to run full throtle..Ha!

The .75 will be a bit on the large size, but the model should fly OK with it. As far as gear is concerned, the stock gear works nicely. We're not sure about an aluminum gear.

I built mine with a fiberglass Dubro landing gear mounted right in front of the wing saddle and it worked great.
The Balsa is thick in this area so I thinned it and added aircraft ply to replace the Balsa I cut out.
I never had any problems associated with this mod.
I had a Magnum 91 four stroke on the plane and I did not feel like it was over powered, I would think the 75 two stroke would fly it very nicely.
Here are a couple of pictures of what it looked like
