Kustom Aero Designs
Ok, so I am trying to make final decisions on the landing gear and wheels. The full size Mono used a 6.50-10 wheel that has an O.D. of 22.1"-21.4". so 55% of this would be 11.75" O.D. To me that sounds a little too big as I was thinking about 7-8"dia. wheels. I am currently planning on making my own tires and hubs for this plane just for kicks since I have had to make everything else. I got some neat ideas in the skunk-works for when I am ready. so here is the million dollar question, should I stay scale and make the wheels 11.75" o.d. or use another smaller size? I have also decided to use an aluminum LG after recieving a quote of $375 for a C.F. one. I just cannot justify that cost for the LG so I will be milling out an aluminum gear that should (key word) weigh in at about 2.5#/2.75# when done.
