Gear stuck!

Recommended Posts

Just took off with the Convair 580 and the nose gear would not retract. Even on the ground any rough taxiway or runway causes it to dive into the ground.Frank B^)

You broke the nose wheel. When it falls thru the ground or a tailwheel falls thru, it has been damaged. I taxi the 580 on grass and gravel and haven't had it do that. You will have to use FSEDIT to beef up the compression rate of that strut.Don
