Robart Trailing Link Struts?

Has any one had any experience using Robart Trailing Link Struts?

I would like to try the Trailing Link Offset strut for my GSS as I do not like the way the planes rigid undercarriage makes her jump up & down the runway like a grasshopper as she taxis, it looks horrible

Sort of surprised Great Planes would use such a cheesy undercarriage set-up.

Re: Robart Trailing Link Struts?

I've got the smaller version (3/8") in a 10lb. Corsair, and they're very well made. The springs in them, however, are too stiff to allow much movement when taxiing around, but I guess need to be to absorb the impact of a less than perfect landing (at which I am very good). That said, they can be disassembled and the springs shortened or replaced to get the desired action. (I left mine alone due to those fore-mentioned landings).
Fitting these struts requires drilling and tapping to install the set screws- a drill press helps, and you'll also need the appropriate tap. I'd suggest using the largest set-screws you can (not necessarily the one's provided) so you can get good torque on the allen wrench. Hope this helps.
