Weight on nose gear

Mead Adventure

Recommended Posts

I am building a Limo EZ which will be heavier than a standard Long EZ. I currently have a fork that I made out of 4130 that I thought could do the job. I am leaning toward the MkIV unit because of watching people taxi through the grass and the electric nose gear raising the plane with pilot on board. Kind of scary.

I was talking about the wheel swivel and fork. How often do the break? Does anyone use the bigger one that I think is for the Cozy Mark IV?

the bigger one is for the 10" dia. tire which is used on the Cozy IV. the Long Ez and cozy 3 use the smaller 8" tire.
