I am kit building a CH 650. While waiting for the wing mods, I have decided to work on the main gear (easily set aside when I get the mods). The 650 plans call for the main gear legs to be installed with the "flat" side toward the front. However, the Zenith demo plane and the HomeBuiltHELP demo plane show the gear legs installed in reverse. Is there a reason for this? Is this an old design? Are others doing this for some reason, or should I just follow the plans?
