    I appreciate Pete's observations, but I still really like your execution. I've sketched this approach out a few times, and have seen other stabs at it. Yours looks well done.

    Another question: why...

    Welcome!

    Now you will have to tell us more about your gear. Like what kind of spring/shocks are those!?

    Heh. I was kicking around the idea of ever fancier gear until reading this thread. Now I'm leaning back to bungees! I already have new ones hanging on the wall....

    NEVER Mind.... You were right. Spam folder.

    Which is odd because the original confirmation came through just fine.

    I renewed back on 11/4 and got a confirmation email. But it had nothing on it to confirm. Did you want us to email you back?

    Yes, buy the yoke and pedals if you want to really use MS or other computer flight simulators. You can get by with a joystick to mess around with. Some of the gaming type joysticks have extra buttons...

    Best to just contact them. I thought it came with everything you need to get started, but I noticed they were offering pedals as something else to buy.

    From what I understand, you also need the glasses to match the wavelength. So If you wear glasses that protect from red lasers, you may not have protection against blue or green.

    I was thinking the same thing, but then I thought of a good reason to push the stick forward. It's to position it out of the way when you unlatch your seatbelt upside down....

    LOL. I have more than 1000 physical books in my small library.

    But my electronic library has 12000+ volumes. Many of them are scans of things printed in the 16th or 17th century. No way could I...

    ^Yes.

    The other thing I'd look at is to compare the Pacer fuselage to the Wagabond fuselage drawings. I suspect the Pacer is a bit heavier. If you extend it some, it gets even heavier.

    I put a railroad tie on the front and back of an old one ton just for that purpose....well, sort of. For some reason it discouraged tailgaters, at least.

    I'm sort of the local harpy on this, but at least I'm not the only one. I routinely see folks getting into their Mooneys or C 182s for a quick trip to Boise in winter, wearing sneakers and slacks,...

    Yup. Total gear failure. Maybe add some wheels on the wingtip too?

    But, it did look like the gear took a lot of shock away from the airframe.

    Wow! So, to put all this in context, obviously the gear held up to that side-load. I shudder to think what would have happened if the tire actually rolled under.

    But I'm trying to understand if...

    It all looks very beautiful, especially compared to my torch-welded gear I put together last Fall.

    The doubler looks impressive. I've never seen struts attached to the cabane like that. What do they connect to? I did a quick search on Beringer gear and didn't see that in other images.

    Good point and something I've tried to do. Reminds me of Steve Fossett in California. Lots of search resources turned up nothing.
