Steph, I don't know whether the fuselage will need to be level or not. For take off, I don't think it would be a problem unless the nose is going to stay on the ground and cause a shimmy. However, my bigger concern would be whether you will be able to land on the mains and not be bumping the nose gear at the same time. Maybe one of the nosedragger pilots on here can contribute their opinion. Seems to me Rob Scmitt's KR would be a good example of a Stock KR-2S nosedragger configuration, so perhaps he can offer a better opinion than me based on his experience. Rob, would it matter on landing if your nose gear was an inch taller? Would that create too much abuse to the nose on landing? What about on takeoff? Would that keep the nose on the ground too long and potentially create a shimmy issue? I suspect not, but perhaps Rob can give us his opinion?

We filled up the brake system. It was a easy job with no leaks. Great feeling. Instruments are installed, I have noise from the radio / transponder. Al wiring is almost finished. Need to final check the flight contralls and install safetywire it. And install the engine but that is plug and play.... The day of the first flight is close...yesssss Question.1 I extended the nose gear 2 inch (50mm) but need only 40mm. So the longaron will be a bit out of water level, and I have a bit more prop clearance, but also more force to the gear. Should I shorten is waterlevel longerons or schould I leave it like this? Question 2 Needs the longarons water level in the mtow situation or in empty weight situation. thanks, stef Steph and his dad are building the KR-2S see http://www.masttotaalconcept.nl/kr2 http://www.masttotaalconcept.nl/kr2 _______________________________________________ Search the KRnet Archives at https://email@example.com/.
