    I kind of wonder why the nose gear is not bent forward so the elbow does not eat pavement or rocks, and the tire can absorb some impact.

    The nosegear is protected by the prop arc.

    I understand it can be converted back to conventional gear. One salesman said for 2k a buyer could get the conv. gear.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Not sure of the pricing and that sounds maybe thin given you have to replace the main gear and install a different lower front cowling and install a tail wheel assembly.

    I hope cub crafters has the good sense to IFR certify it if they build it. If your going to spend all that money for an airplane might as well be able to file.

    I understand the tail wheel and spring comes with the conversion. The lower cowling does not need to be replaced.

    I wonder if spring or air pre-load can be added to the nosegear? It appears to compress easily and from an engineering perspective maybe that's to protect the mount. We like to adjust stuff.

    They said it had internal discs, similar to the AOSS. I don't know about adjustability
