Manufacturer of Scale Landing Gears for RC Airplanes

Who are We

Welcome to the RcCrafters website. We manufacture scale landing gear systems for RC jets and non-jets. Our designs are scale enough for static competition and durable for flight use. Each set is custom tailored to the scale and weight of the aircraft.

History

Building landing gear systems for RC airplanes has been a family affair since 1995. All of the parts machining and finishing has been done in house and never been outsourced. The website production and maintenance is also performed by an IT specialist in the family.

How Do We Do It

All designs are scaled from photos of the "real" full size aircraft or factory blueprints. After scaling them down to the desired size, the gear is then drawn to scale in CAD. From there, the CAD drawings serve as the blueprints to the machining process. All the steps are completed in house on our mill and lathes. After trial assembly is completed, the gear is broken down and all pieces are bead blasted. Final finish is left to the consumer.
