Landing gear wire
OK, I admit it. I had to remake the rear landing gear wires. When I looked at the gear the other day, it finally hit me. I put the lower fitting (where the cross brace wire attaches) on the back bolt, not the front bolt! Consequently, the beautiful wrapped and soldered wires I made were too short.
So, I spent the afternoon today making new wires. Oh, well....
See, now the fitting is in the proper location. Geometrically, the loads will pull closer to the peach basket rather than further up the gear leg.
Now I feel better about hanging the engine with the fuselage sitting on the gear. Hope to post more soon.
