Trike gear on BUHOR?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Can I put a trike gear arrangement on the BUHOR with the nose wheel? It will alter the C of G no doubt but I don't know enough about planes to know how to alter the dimensions of the plans on Spadtothebone.

Any help would be great.
If it isn't Baroque don't fix it.

You need not alter any dimensions.

Just buy an engine mount with the holes already in place for nose gear like the Great Planes adjustable mount and buy a nose gear and install. The Deb and BUHOR have roughly the same fuse length, and they install a trike gear on her...just put your main gear at 15-17 inches from the front of the fuse and install.

Since the rudder servo is mounted in the back on the BUHOR, you have to find a way to mount it on its side to give you better access in order to run the nose gear's control wire from the rudder servo to the gear'S control arm.

ONce that is done just put your wing on temporarily and slide it until you get it to balance on the wing's CG, then install it permanently as the plans tell you to and find an instructor and go fly.
