    I'm sorry. I am selling everything as a lot. I might go as far as selling all the Bensen related stuff as one lot and the A/C as another. I will say that when I converted my A/C to clt, the pod wouldn't fit...and you have to take off the entire front end to get it on. Also, you have to consider that you might have to move the rotor head cheek plates. Lastly, I was only flying behind a Rotax 503 and wasn't sure about the extra weight and drag issues. Just giving you some things to consider. albert

    Moving my landing gear back was one of the best things I did, it made take-offs much safer,the boyer stab is the best in my opinion,a wider gear would OK I guess,there are times when one wheel or the other comes up on say cross wind landings.however its not a real big concern for me. To me moving my gear back was the biggest safety improvement that I made. On take-offs I can still keep my nose wheel on the ground until I'am ready to rotate,also I can hold my rotor blade at that sweet spot for faster
    rpm increase without having the nose wheel in the air,my take-off distance has been
    shortend by al least 30-40 %. the landing gear is about the only thing I have changed.

    best regards,eddie.....
