The short bolt with a hole in it is to hold the wire so the first bend does not look like a "J". The bolts are standard AN bolts which are about an industrial grade 5. Think ahead when you are placing the clamp bolt cause it is easy to get it trapped in the middle of your landing ear.
Thanks for posting those pics. I played around a few times with some bolts and never seemed to come up with anything that worked very well. Will have to make one like that next night shift. Got lots of AN and NAS bolts right at my fingertips.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.

Re: Making landing gear

Cheap way for landing gear wire.....go to Canadian tire,or walmart,and buy a larger(correct diameter) chromed barbeque tongs.I found that the wire is good and springy,and looks great too.Alex
