Anybody tried the RV Gear conversion on the Acrosport yet. Pitts guys are using it and I think it would be a neat change for the AcroSport I.


I am going to try it and maybe do some photos, plans, hints & suggestions. Will be a little tougher because I have an angle valve IO-360 hung on the nose.


I will have aone-piece aluminum gear with axles and maybe even the wheels and tires for sale....not sure quite yet. The gear is comparable to the Grove gear and MAYBE a Grove gear but I will have to research this fact a little more. Airplane does good with the gear that is on it now but I just like the looks of the RV gear.


Any suggestions or comments from anyone about this change?
