    Question... I have a Alpha Trainer withthe wire landing gear. I'm wanting to change the main landing gear to a sturdy alluminum gear by hanger (.40 size)... will this change over require me to have the plane ballanced?

    Thanks.

    It is always a good idea to re-balance your plane after making changes like this. It never hurts to be sure.

    Check the balance point before and after, but the main gear should be located very close to the BP, so it isn't likely to have much effect. If it does, something else is way wrong.
