Skymaster Hawk u/c question
 
Recently purchased a Hawk kit (albeit in T45 scheme). Nice kit. It uses inflatable tire's and an air assisted oil damper for the oleo struts.
My question is to users that have put some time on their jets with this config.
How does it hold up and does it need some maintenance?

No one knows?

The landing gear are very robust and require very little maintenance. However, you may need to add air to the struts from time to time.

Andre I have the Hawk and the Avantis XXL and I always pump with air before a weekends flying and it lasts a good few days. Just start at around 100psi and see how it goes. Hawk I found 120psi and Avantis 130psi is around the best for me.
