Thanks for the advice. I really don't plan on changing the gear right now. I did the mock up quick and put those lines in there just for a visual. Although the measurements are correct. If I were going to attempt this I would try to put shocks in there. I dont enderstand how they get the leg tubes to flatten out at the end to fit inside the bracket? Thanks for the concearn regarding the landing gear. I was just messing around though. With you guys advice maybe I can make something look right on paper atleast before I ever try to weld anything.
This would be 55 inches wide at the Hubs. I'm messing around and contemplating trying to build something, Or atleast have someone weld it for me. I would put shocks in there. Still haven't designed the cabine part yet.
This program called sketchup is so easy and intuitive to use. This is the ribtail reinforcement that I made in there. Im stll going to add the extra metel for the 90 degree bend but i 1st need to measure the airplane to see where it should start. It is upside down in the picture, the way I lofted it made it easier that way.
Anybody have a rib to a Kitfox 1. I can't seem to get the shape of the rib tails coppied to paper accurately to fabricate to the rib tail modification. Engineers on here make me look like a monkey. How can I measure this thing? A drawing of the kitfox 1 ribtail? I actually fabricated the brackets but I did it by hand and I think I need to have these things cnc cut with more percision. Maybe they are good enough but i'd rather do perfect work.
ahhh that's unfortunate. Not much to choose from when it comes to Bushgear. Unless you order from Kitfox and it is EXPENSIVE! I talked to the TK1 guys about modifying my current gear, but I'm just not too sure what the final product would look like. I like the clearance you have on yours. Putting the shocks on my bird might be a little bit like putting lipstick on a pig but in my mind I feel like it would make for a safer airplane. I guess that's just my justification of spending the money on it.
