Default Infinity gear cheap?

Be one of only ten owners in the World. act quickly and you could own a barely used retractable gear with wheels and tires that is being replaced with a set of the good old, tried and true stock Cozy IV. gear comes complete with mounting hardware and spar mounting layup allready attached. just add your spar to complete. some repair may be required. and your landing performance may vary.

There is no go reason to keep it. the rebuild would add many hours to the aircraft rebuild and in the end there is no benifit to the RG. a ten MPH decrease in top speed is a decrease you never see in flight unless racing. the cruse speed will be the same, maybe use a little more fuel but not worth the rebuild of the gear. we removed the wheel wells today and we will get back the much needed fuel space the gear took up. a closer look today revealed that there is not a straight part left in the gear, the half forks are bent, the struts are bent and dented, the pivot structure is bent and has cracked welds. It is Junk
