  2. I'm looking to replace the aluminum landing gear with a carbon set, this is an older airframe, a Aviation Models yak. There are no specific parts availible that I can find. Would I be able to use a generic set or a set for another 30% model?

    I would think any 30-33% yak gear would work. Here's a shot in the dark for you. Get hold of Steve at Chief Aircraft (Oregon). Surprising as it may be, he still has like 51 c.f. landing gear for my SD 260. He may have something to fit. Aviation should be spot on with Thunder Tiger, TOC, SD.

    Agreed. I build my own tanks and I would definitely not use Tygon when you can get Viton. Sure it is pricey, but for the value it simply hard to beat. It is far superior in every way. I took a tank apart some months back after about five years of use just for the total heck of it and the Viton line was as it was the day it was put in the tank. I put it right back in service.

    No doubt, just makes sure you get the correct Viton. The stuff from PSP is awesome. The Durometer rating is the key. 60 or so is good, but 75 is to hard and can split at the fittings.

    Jetpainter is correct I can testify first hand spring of last year I pranged I 50cc decathlon because of Viton tubing in the tank ran down the runway and as soon as pulled up the engine died and that was it the tubing had split of nipple in the tank so make sure you have the correct stuff.
