This weekend we attached the landing gears to the plane. What an exciting day to complete what feels like a major milestone. I have been thinking for months now about attaching the landing gears and have put it off for as long as possible in order to keep the plane accessible as possible. It was finally time to mount these things and I thought it would be a big deal trying to squeze the legs into the mounts. It turned out to take like 30 minutes or less for the main gears! Piece of cake! Our good buddy Keith came over to help get this all done. The excitement between us all was very high.
We used a method that fellow RV-10 builder Phil Perry described on the VAF forums as linked here. It worked out really well for us.
