Default Marlin 64mm weak front strut & how to fix

Yesterday I flew the Arrows Marlin 64mm on the nearby the coastline and after a few flights the nose wheel started to bend, even after reasonable landings. As with most of the 64mm fixed undercarriage jets, the tend to do this, but an easy inexpensive fix is to replace the weak 'bendable' front gear with an easy to fit Oleo Strut. This make a big difference in a hard landing. In the Marlin example, loosen the hex nuts & remove the assembly. The small set of 3 ordered from Castle RC for the FMS or Eflite Viper is the perfect size wheel & length, whereas the HK type are much too large but ideal for the bigger size jets.
