FlightLine RC 1600mm Spitfire Main Landing Gear Strut and Tire - Right
Replacement for broken scissor link
Thankyou for your great service.
Torque Link Bracket should be metal or offer it as spare part!
I’m giving this strut one star, not because it doesn’t function as designed, or the way it looks, on the contrary, it is precisely as the original and functions very well. The one star rating stems from the fact that I had to spend $18.99 plus shipping to purchase the whole strut just to get a small plastic bracket which broke during a landing and although removable (it has two screws!) it is not sold separately as a spare part! For those of you who own this airplane you’ll notice that attached to the strut there is a small plastic 90 degree bracket (can’t cost more than a dollar, if that!) which provides support for the torque link fork at the lower end! Now, I understand there are cost considerations during the design process of these airplanes, but this part absorbs energy during landings as transmitted by the torque link and had it been made out of metal, no way it breaks! If it cannot be made from metal, at least it should be offered as a spare part!
