Keep the Skinny Birds Flying Safely

Our absorbers were getting pretty worn out so we ordered a sheet of rubber and had as many absorbers as we could cut out of it.  We have extras sets that are pre cut.  Email Darrylmeii@yahoo.com, Mielke1991@yahoo.com or call 605-252-0256 and ask for Darryl or Shawn if you have any questions. Thanks

I recall that both type A and type B landing gear use the same donuts.  What rubber did you use?  There is a specific type called out.  Use the wrong stuff and the gear will be either too soft or too stiff, and you'll be missing out on one of the more beloved features of the Collegiate: great landings after not-so-great approaches and flares.

Also I should state that these were made for and put on our 1941 CP-65(unsure if other years or models had different size cuts)
