ft spitfire landing gear mod and build

by jack111 | July 10, 2013 | (3) Posted in Projects

this is my design for the ft spitfire landing gear mod feel free to copy


 this is the gear,make shure if you attempt this to mesure and sand, cut a relife channel so the zip ties are down and the wood will meet flush.

 this is the tailwheel,put it flat and hot glue it. correction! you can not mount the tail wheel on top! also put packing tape before hot gluing!

this is the ft spitfire (not complete)

this is where you will have your gear glued to


feel free to copy!

Ah, just a quick tip - you want the landing gear well in front of your CG - if you have the wheels below the CG it'll just nose-dive when you give throttle to take off, or when you come in to land. So if you've already mounted it in place, try bending the legs forward. The original had them bent forward as well (http://spitfire9.com/fullsize/supermarine-spitfire_7.jpg)
