The first version of the Corsair will feature a classic tailwheel configuration. The fixed main landing gears will be located at the wings and due to the wing shape will be rather short and quite aerodynamic. The main wheels will be on cantilevers with hydraulic springs and dampers. The tail gear is connected with the rudder and allows good ground handling. Even the tail wheel is on a cantilever and has an elastomeric spring and damper.


Provisions for a retractable landing gear have been considered in the wing design and a retractable version will become available in the future. Nevertheless it has to be stated, that the retractable version does not promise to be any faster - the additional weight and the resulting drag will consume the aerodynamic benefit. But the looks will of course be improved.
