Actually they don’t use aircraft quality nuts or bolts, all unmarked metric of unknown stencil strength, to short? It doesn’t matter , it has a look nut on.! For curiosity I brought a reduction box ($250) nice castings and very good machining, opened it and ,wow.. the gears are welded to the shafts, but it dint get hot under load despite holding only 200cc of lubrication. Seen them working on a twin seated gyro with a locally made BMW engine with a belted reduction and more sophisticated landing struts. Propellers are all hand made. Chinese resources are something to reckon with.QUOTE=hillberg;417982]The bolt shanks and thredded areas don't look good & a lot of plane nuts. Nice but needs refinment in assembly.
It does matter if the theads do not pass through the nut as in the lower picture of the wheel strut. It is great that gyros have become popular in China.
Maybe we can get some new plastic or compoiste tail feathers at a walmart price.
Nice nose wheel assembly also. Are those for sale? If so PM me.
