    Blue grass is good, rye grass not so as it is a bunch grass that grows in clumps. I don’t think you will ever have a smooth runway with rye grass in the mix.

    Thanks Av8r I take it grove are superior to matco brakes and wheels by reflecting on what they cost?  This conversion isn’t going to be cheap the Canadian peso doesn’t buy much these days.

    Grove gear coming what wheels and brakes do I need?
    I have a grove gear coming for my Merlin gt and need brakes and wheels for it. Empty weight is 720 lbs gross is 1400 lbs and I will be running 8:50 x6 tires for now and maybe 26 inch airstreaks in the future. What would you guys recommend for brakes and wheels? 
    thanks in advance

    In the above 3 photos with gear that’s painted red yellow and black it looks like the brackets for the grove gear are homemade. What material is used cold rolled steel? What thickness would be needed? If I go grove I need to build these brackets.

    I would consider his gear. How do I get a hold of him to see if he is interested in building a set?

    I give Grove a call....they make the gear but building a mount would be up to me as they say they don’t make the mounts for their  gear. Still searching.

    Iv2ply have you any updates on your Merlin project. I have one and need landing gear for it also. I could use some good advise on what direction to go with it. I see some neat looking custom built gear for avids and kitfox aircraft on here but can’t find any contact information on them to see if they could build one for my Merlin.

    Who in Western Canada will recover wings
    I need new fabric on the wings off my Merlin and not sure if I want to tackle it. Who in western Canada or Montana does this?
