    Forgot I had these or I would have given them to plncraze when he picked up the 4A084.

    I have two fiberglass suspension springs as used on the Chevy Corvette. They would make good landing gear for a smaller LSA design. And as i understand it they could be cut down to size if they are too big.

    Free for pickup. Don't know what the shipping would be. But if you are interested let me know. I just wnat to get rid of them.

    OK, but we will have to figure out how much shipping will cost. I got them several years ago and don't remember how much shipping was.

    Maybe I'll stop somewhere today and find out.

    If you still have the landing gear I could use them. I'm building an affordaplane and the next part is the landing gear. Plans only shows LG without suspension.

    Yes, I still have them but they are promised to someone else.

    I think they would be too heavy for the Affordaplane. As I understand it, the Affordaplane gear is one weak spot in the design. Look around the internet for what others have done. There are some better ideas out there.
