Anti-Splat-Aero is very proud to offer this revolutionary product (THE NOSE JOB 1) as a partial solution to the nose gear leg fears of many RV-A model builders, current owners and potential buyers of these wonderful aircraft. After watching, reading, analyzing, researching and waiting for someone to offer up a solution we decided to go to work on the problem. This product allows the Vanís nose gear leg to function as designed without interfering with its dynamics or operation in any way.
The product only comes into play when the forces on the gear leg, if allowed to increase further, would become greater than the gear leg was designed to see or handle without permanent damage to itself or the aircraft. When operating your aircraft from an unimproved surface i.e. grass, dirt, poor runway surface or in an emergency off field landing this device could help prevent a costly repair, a propeller strike, engine disassembly for inspection or other damage may be avoided not to mention a dreaded possible flip over we have seen so many times.
