Has anyone used this gear? I can't find any photos of how this attaches to the plane anywhere. The www.fancyfoam.com (http://www.fancyfoam.com) website shows a small picture and the package landing gear kit only. The video of the strength of the gear is impressive IMO.

Please comment on this product and show your installation if you have used this product.

Any other landing gear is welcomed for viewing also.

Thanks,
Derrick

I have one but haven't put it any anything yet. It's a very clever leaf spring type system. The lite ply pieces you see at the right side of the picture are two separate pieces with slots cut in them. You insert the two flat carbon legs in two of the slots (two left, two right) and then capture them with the second piece of lite ply. Cut a slot in the fuselage and glue in place. On the Fancy foam planes it also ties into the carbon wing rod.
