Hi Sam - Did you figure out the Nosegear Shock Suspension using the round rubber disks on your CH801? If so, what disks did you use, how many, and where did you get them? I have a CH640 which has the same front fork design as the CH801 and I'd like to get rid of the shock cord on my plane also. Thanks ! Brian 702-371-6710
Your experience on reduced drag with belly cargo pod is highly interesting. Thanks for sharing.
For the wing slats, you may want to see "swing slat" moving up for slat opened and moving down flushed with wing leading-edge top surface for slat closed. The construction/modification is very much simpler than the moving in-and-out slats.
