These a higher quality than stock(at least the wheels are). I would like to see a couple shim washers included to help align them at install.
Bend easily, it doesn't take a hard landing to make 'em bend. They need a bigger diameter wire for the strut. FMS should consider fixing this problem unless they are counting on replacement parts to make money.
Back up landind gear
Yes they do bend very easily i will fix them but will send for new ones for a back up.
Strega p-51 main landing gear
I have had my strega p-51 for at least a year and fly it every week and the landing gear has always worked. I had a really hard landing recently and they got bent so I took them apart and put them in a vice and bent them strait,then reinstalled them and they work fine.I purchased some more just for back up.
Not strong enough wire
Once these bend and are straighten they bend very easily. Best not to straighten them unless very necessary. I got about five flights on my new gear before they bent. I practice take off and landings and have no problems with other planes. This gear is used on my FMS Strega. One ground loop with a skid at the end and these are bent. I wish there was a way to make them stronger or replace with a stronger gear. Mike
