    It looks as if the main hinge pin towards the front of the gear frame could be move down. If you do this, this should straighten the swing on the struts swing to the proper position. Paul may have to remove some of the main hinge to clear the rear part of the gear frame and also get the proper angle of the hinge between the gear frame and the hinge. It’s hard to tell from the video.

    One thing you might consider on the next gear build for your next project, is to make that part of the hinge adjustable for just a case, particularly since it is going to be a test case project. Then once you figure out the correct positions needed…

    Talking about the main spar — why does it have to run thru the gear well at 90 degrees to the center line of the airplane? Seems like that will give you a lot of wing that is aft of the spar and more or less unsupported and subject to twisting at high loads. Would it not be just as easy to run the spar span-wise along the length wings parallel to the mean chord line? This also would give you something solid to attach the flaps and ailerons to. The only thing that would change is that instead of plugging straight into the fuselage, the wings and spars would slide into the fuse at an angle. How do you plan to route the intake ducts around the spars and gear wells?
