HK P-51D Mustang Landing Gear Replacement Set
Hmotnost ( g )
I bought this as a replacement for another P51D about the same size. I felt it was heavy- total weight for both is 43 grams. Other thing I didn't like was there's no give in the gear, meaning if you have a hard landing, either the gear will bend or the landing gear will rip off. The tires are nice though, nice and sponge like. I suppose they expect the tires to absorb most of the impact on landing. Other than that it does look nice and you can't beat the price.As replacement for son's mustang. Great to be able to get some spares!! :))Perfect replacement part. The metal is brittle, so bad landings will eventually wear this metal out bending it back in shape. Two have snapped at the 90 degree angle.HK P-51D Mustang landing gear is the same as stock item.
They're fairly scale and look good. Can be painted easily.
They prefer to run on a harder surface.
Long grass gets caught between the wheel and the plastic cover.
Easy to install and remove.
(1) Wheels will rotate faster if you loosen the plastic nut holding the wheel to the axle.
(2) Remove the plastic cover and glue them on upside down.
This will prevent the wheels from catching the grass upon landings.
Put the left cover onto the right wheel and visa versa,
Add lots of glue to the thin end of the covers and glue them to the plastic wheel nut. Glue will fill the 1mm gap. Or use BluTak.
This setup looks better than removing cover completely and will withstand most succesful landings.
