Hi Keith,
I just purchased a Bormatec Maja and noticed that you have a large amount of experience with them. But I was just wondering if I could ask you if you've considered a landing gear setup and receive some advice from you.  I ordered the gear package from Bormatec and was surprised by the lack of instructions included.  Mainly, I was wondering how to insert and setup a steerable nose wheel with its servo coordinating with the rudder (the main gear is self explanatory).  Also, I was thinking about replacing the foam wheels with rubber ones to improved the performance.  I'd really appreciate any help and assistance you could send my way.

Hi Craig,

I did not fit any landing gear to my Maja's. As skid landing on crops was the best way for us to work.

There is a blog on a HobbyKing forum here, You could put a few posts on the FPV forums, especially forum.

There is a video on YouTube showing the 1st San Diego North County FPV Meetup - Flying the Maya

Best of luck!
