    Very valuable input from all of you. Larry my trike has fiber glass landing gear struts. So I went to the hangar today, Pushed the trike wheel with my finger to see how deflated it was, It went 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. I checked with the PSI gadget, ...

    One of the worst rides of my life was on skinny tires when it Duckwalked. I think it just needs grip to do it. And it seems to me that a perfect soft landing is not even helpful if the trike is susceptiblel to duck walking. Northwing has a new ...

    And flat, wide tires would make the effect worse no??

    Good point. Slop in the frame over time can actually develop an angle on the tire on landing that could be effectively the same effect

    They won't duck walk on grass. Slop in the frame and landing gear or misalignment of the rear wheels can cause this. The closer the rear wheels are to the hang point, the more susceptible the trike is to duck walking in the first place.

    The angled mast gives plenty of headroom.

    The mains are not angled straight or true producing downward and sideways force on one wheel then the other upon landing

    So Abid, what is the major reason for this duck walking? I think mine kept getting worse cuz the frame was getting tweeked a little bit more every time it happened..

    Riz: Stop flying it till this issue is resolved or you are going to flip that trike over and create a lot of bills to fix it. Its duck walking more than its shimmying. Older Airbornes and NW develop this quite famously and I know multiple ones of ...

    Better resolve that issue quickly. I developed the same thing in my phase II and no matter what I tried it didn't go away. Seemed like it developed when I put wider tires on the back. Also I only land on pavement as Larry commented. I think it ...
