DESIGN: UniCopter ~ Landing Gear - Retractable - Left & Right Skids
The thinking is to use the same mounting locations as would/will be used by DESIGN: UniCopter ~ Landing Gear - Fixed - Left & Right Skids
The legs swing forward and up for retraction. The bottom of the legs swing slightly aft of vertical when they ar fully down.
The bottom contour of the skid is such that it will aerodynamically compatible with the fuselage when the skid is retracted.
