Landing gear question


Registered User
Dear cubbers out there,

Here is a question, which may sound really stupid to you, but here it goes.

Ive been looking at lots of pictures in the gallery, only to notice that a lot of folks dont have fabric on the landing gear, especially the buddies in alaska. Whats the purpose of this? is it because in bush operations, rocks and stuff tend to punch through the fabric witht he prop wash?

Neways, just a question!


The reasons that you sighted are most of the reasons I took my fabric off. But, the most important reason is ability to inspect the gear better. The cracks can be hidden by fabric.
