SR-71/ YF-12/ A-12 landing gear

This is the super scale landing gear that you need for your SR-71/ YF-12/ A-12 model

 

The gear is CAD designed by Oli and is using our now famous hybrid 3D printing/ machining process.




The struts are completely in-house CNC machined on our Siemens milling centers to 5/100 mm precision. We are using 100% USA produced and certified Al 2024 T351 rated at 47,000 PSI yield strength and Al 7075 T651 rated at 73,000 PSI for all the gear components.

The hyper scale landing gear covers are laser 3D printed to 25 micron resolution and can be replaced in case of damage.

 

The retracts are pneumatic Behotec C50F units.

The retracts are fixed to the structure using 3 mm carbon fiber flex plates. These are removable to offer a quick turnaround time in case of a hard landing event.

The tires are 3D printed in a very scale light grey high abrasion resistant rubber. They are hollow but not inflated. A radial internal structure insures the stiffness of the tire. This technique allows to save an amazing amount of weight on the landing gear.
