Re: Tri-Q main gear for sale?

It took some messing around to get the new Scott leg installed on FN, and I believe it is about right now, it is as close to the build book values as I could get.
I set the whole leg up with the wheel assembly using a line set up to act as the groundline per the build book
Kevin sent me a photo of his that helped loads, if I remember correctly Scott's nose leg was built to fit a GU canard and on Kevin's it needed a block under the rear mount to sit properly on an LS. Im not sure what angle Kevin ended up with, but with mine, using a Waterline to check, found that it didnt need the rear block, I just adjusted the angle to the front mount pickup and it was virtually spot on.
So from my viewpoint if FN flies straight off with no further adjustment needed, I would want any replacment leg to be identical because I have gone through the pain messing around already. So if Richard is going to offer various versions things may get difficult to know what standard we each have. I think selling a standard leg is the best way forward .

Sorry Mike, not sure what my final canard incidence will be, but it looks positive at the moment with no engine and no tail !
