We have developed a line of lightweight struts for UAV of various sizes, from 10 kgs to 100 kgs AUW.
These are made of Alcoa Al2024 tubes.
Al2024 is a fatigue resistant alloy that very well suited for this purpose.
Our strut are modular and can be repaired easily. They consist of:
Upper tube pin plug
Upper strut tube
Lower spring platform
Lower shock tube
Lower wheel upright or wheel fork
Spring factor can be modified to suit the weight of the UAV.
The strut has double guidance system: two bronze pins/ slots on the strut tub, one set of alloy compass.

S16: strut OD 16 mm/ lower shock tube OD 14 mm/ length 160 to 180 mm strut top to wheel axle/ AUW from 10 to 15 kgs
S22: strut OD 22 mm/ lower shock tube OD 19 mm/ length 200 to 250 mm
