Tiger 2 landing gear

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am doing the trike configuration. For the landing gear that is in the wing (rear gear) - should the gear point straight down (ie 90 degrees from the wing), or should it be angled somewhat? The plans are kind of vague, and since this is my first low wing build, I was just wondering. Thanks.

In trike situation, you want them slightly angled towards the back. So, when the plane is on the ground, they are slightly angled towards the tail.

I own both Tigers .40 and .60....
The Tiger has the tendency to bob up and down in the tarmac even when well balanced and raking the main gears back will help that. Say, 3/4"" from vertical....
Enjoy it, is a great flier....
Once my hands and knees stop shaking I take the planes out of the car.

I built my 40 size into a taildragger. It was a kit and didn't include plans for a taildragger model. I don't know about trike gear, but my taildragger handles very well, both with wheels and skiis

In theory, everything works.
