Landing Gear Wire


Well-known member
Hi Everyone,

Has anyone use a steel coat hanger for landing gear wire ? The coat hanger I am thinking about using has the right size diameter to fit the wheel. Any thoughts ? Yes/no ?

I have used a hanger on one of my biplanes. CarolineTyler is correct, I have to take off and land very gently or I have to rebend it back into the shape I want it in.
