CH601HD Main Gear Spring/Rubber Bungees and Dual Controls???

Hi everybody just starting a build on a CH601HD and this is my first post, I have a few questions.

I see that Viking makes the nose spring bungee kit, I was wondering if anybody makes a similar kit for the main gears on a CH601HD? or if anyone has made their own I would love to see it.

Does anybody have a kit or drawings for dual controls in the CH601HD? I see Zenith has the kit for the later models but not for the CH601HD. Thanks

i think he’s talking about his main gear legs, not his nose wheel.

Joseph, I believe there has been a few 601/650 aluminum gear conversions done on a 601HD.

We have over 550 units or so out there now with this setup, the 601HD works fine with it as well. I do know they have the puck system as well from Zenith, but it will require some mods. -Alissa
