Sturdy Undies

The main landing gear on the Eflite Alpha Sport 450 are pretty sturdy, but the nose gear was prone to flexing. I finally snapped it last week. I ordered a Sullivan Knuckle Nose Gear from Tower Hobbies to replace it. This makes for a pretty sturdy pair of undies! Flew her today and this gear kept her straight and true on the ground, and she turned with authority during taxiing. In the install I had to replace the gear attachment with the Sullivan one, which was a bit large. I cut an inch off the top of the gear wire, and she fits perfectly.
