Frame is just 312g and total AUW will be around 410g where my motor will produce 440g of thrust so good 1:0.9 thrust to weight ratio best for slow flyer

I don't think anyone consider it as an interesting build but i love this plane cause it's an old timer  Grin

Anyway here are the landing gears i have done today did experiment with alloy,plastic and normal steel wire but this looked and appealed best  Smiley
