I am still looking for a set of Infinity retract landing gear for sale. New / used / or damaged / just the struts / installed or laying around any condition.  Infinity Aerospace is not responding to calls or inquiries since June.  Any leads or referrals appreciated.

Does anyone have a updated status on JD at Infinity?  Thought he was going to be back by Aug-Sept.

I was hoping to see JD at Oshkosh but he did not attend.  Phone goes straight to voicemail, no response to emails directly and I get what looks like an auto response when using the on site web contact page.  I had another forum member contact me who is in communication with him but I have had no luck reaching him.

That's a concern for those building with plans to install the gear (but haven't ordered yet).

Easy fix... change your plans and "settle" for fixed gear 🙂

Richard-

What are you putting the retracts in? And how far along is your project?

Not when the plans LG bulkheads are absent!

There are other options...

I am building a Berk-EZ.  Receiving wing cores from Eureka CNC next week.  Shooting to start fuselage Jan or Feb next year but need to settle gear for that to happen.

Richard- Sounds interesting.  Can you elaborate on details of the build? 

And just curious - when I last spoke with Eureka (this summer), they told me foam core prices would nearly triple due to his supply of economically priced foam disappearing.  If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for the foam cores.

I am building a Berkut without the kit.  The fuselage will be carbon triax and made from a one-off CNC foam mold.  

$4224.00 for the complete Berkut package with jigs.

Are you able to share your digital files for the CNC?

I saw a message from J.D. Newman today saying he had been sick but planned to resume his business (Infinity) some day.    From the description of his problems I wouldn't count it it happening very quickly.
