Just got off Graphtech's site and did not see the Sukhoi listed there. Maybe I'll call them Monday.

YakPilot: How are yours holding up?

Only three flights so far but they are doing great. It's hard to make a bad landing with this plane though It is a real floater!
Try this link. They are back ordered at this time.http://www.graphtechrcshop.com/produ...4&categoryId=6

Well Frank, that's a hard question to answer. No gear is bullet-proof of course and I think that aluminum gear is more forgiving of bouncey or side loaded landings. Having said that I have seen the graphtec gear on my 35% TOC yak take a fair amount of abuse without a problem.
I guess that's a long winded way of saying I don't know.

I just got their standard version. Nice to know they beef up if needed. These do have a nice amount of flex though. When landing and taxiing they behave very much like the stock aluminum ones.

Frank, I would recommend staying with the aluminum gear as it is more forgiving than the carbon gear---the aluminum gear will absorb the bo-bo's where the carbon gear just passes the bo-bo's on into the fuse. I got some IMAC practice in today with my H9 Suk.

dusted mine off the other day for a few flights and nailed the first landing, second one it was crabing a little well maybe 45 degree to run way . Then i had to use my brain and thumbs, had a panic attack and seemed like the plane was headed to my nose,. Then left , right, up and down and bounce a little hard, should have went around. Sherman saw a pilot crack one on a good landing, this gear might not be good for me but does it every look GOOD! Oh a float comment, the pics were nice,you are having to much fun save some for NALL thanks to all frank
