Thanks T.....If you want to talk to someone who's done it, first hand, ring up Sonja Englert who did a build presentation on her Caro 1 motorglider at the 2018 ESA workshop, including how she built her landing gear. She's got a web-page up for her consulting/flight-test business. You should be able to turn that up with a brief search.
EDIT: Here you go: https://www.caro-engineering.com/
I emailed her asking if the presentation was available anywhere.
