I think these guys are giving you a HINT. If you want to recover any of your R/D cost. You better slash the prices significantly.

Making some money is better than making none.

Did you guys look at those pictures??? Look at all the work that went into that gear. I have had some work done by Matrix and the stuff is very good quality.

Guys, these gear have 182 parts in them, not counting the purchased components, fastners... Over 728 machining operations. All joining surfaces are oilite bushed. All wheels have ball bearings. And they take forever to assemble (right now). Forget the R/D cost. I love making this stuff and hope to recover the production costs.

Default Think smaller

Hows about a smaller set for a Byron sized F-16? It would be perfect for a new P70.

Hey,

How much did the gear cost for the big AD F-16? It could have been another make, but I remember seeing some very simple looking sport gear for a big Falcon at LA jets a couple years ago. Someone told me they were $1400, and I exclaimed out loud "for WHAT??" because they were just big retract units with big, straight oleos attatched to them. When I first saw these gear, I also thought OMG about the price, but when compared to those others, it seems very reasonable.

Well, all that is necessary to prove me wrong is for you guys to plunk down your money.

I don't doubt the quality, and work involved. Hopefully your using CNC so the part are consistient from one set to another. Ball bearings is a bad idea, too much load on too small of contact points. Needle bearing would be better.

Wow those things make me want to snatch up a Top Gun F-16. That sure would be a swell setup big dollars or not! What is the wait on one of these sets?
