Hi Liam. Re-read you're post and put yourself in the position of someone just reading it who's never seen your plane. If you tell us which Starmax F-18 it is (I think they make 3 different sizes, some with retracts) and describe the trouble, someone might be able to help.

Hi liamlg444, first: WELCOME to WattFlyer!
Second, Sorry about your landing gear troubles.

xmech is right, more info will help us help you faster. Is it not attaching correctly?
Regards,

John

Looks like its just a collet with a allen key keeper to keep it from falling out. Just stick it in there and tighten her up.
