    No offense to Joey who is hoping to work for them, I too think that Icom is nothing but a pyramid scam.
    I believe the owners of that company belong in prison.

    He has either changed the design or changed his mind on the subject in the year since we spoke.
    Your plane, your choice.  I wouldn't run this design gear with steel springs, that's my choice.

    I'm seriously considering trying to find some type of squirrel cage fan to use.  I'm not happy with the dual 4" computer fans.  They do not move enough air through the exchange to heat the cabin sufficiently, IMO.

    Lowell told me directly, he quit making this gear due to too many bent airplanes.

    The problem is roto-molded polyurethane is not strong enough for the structural needs.  
    This is why fiberglass is still being used, with an updated resin which is better resistant to modern gasoline additives including ethanol contamination.

    Just like a Piper wing tank.  They have tubes through them for the drag cables to pass.  This allows the tank to "float" in the bay.

    Coated exhaust is an easy fix.  Media blast off the coating, weld, re-coat.  Easy peasy.
