Description

I bent the steel wire for the landing gear for my FliteTest.com FT-Storch, only to find that I suck at bending it to spec, so the plane would've been rolling down the runway kinda lopsided.  Not good, and even worse at speed trying to land it!  So, being better at printing simple objects than bending steel, I drew up these printed landing gear legs.  These ones weigh about 30-40g more than the sotck ones, but that's hardly a great deal on an aircraft this size.  

* If you downloaded this before 19OCT2014, I updated the files with a small hole for the zip-tie that holds the axle to the legs, saving the trouble of drilling one.

Materials and methods

ABS Filament of your choice, about 81g of it.
