  1. Your gear modification makes sense to me. The increased mechanical advantage gained by relocating the pivot and the “tweaking” of the lock-down strut are going to solve this dilemma. As far as the drogue chute deployment goes, keep on it—I’m sure a simple solution is soon coming.

    Bob, Good to see you at the field Saturday!(3-10-12) Great project you have! Uh…Landing gear up/down locks…Are you able to install a control arm onto the heim brg. location, and move the air cyl rod end (heim bearing)to the new control armAny angle you want may be positioned. Then, it’s just if the arcking motion of the cylinder placement will still function within the confines of the wing. I may be 100 years behind suggesting it, but it crossed my tiny mind. Good luck
