    It won't let me upload the picture, it says the file is too big.

    Thanks again everyone, Larry I have drag links and also shock strut (I believe that is what it's called). The previous owner had added the drag link and shock strut after buying the trike. I will post some pictures.

    Gregg: I didn't know that that is the standard perspective but so doesnt anyone I am advising here I guess. Excessive toe in is NOT desired from what you described as the standard view on a trike. You can be straight or be about 1 degree toe out or ...

    Toe in or toe out has been quite the debate. Parallell is how the NW. Is designed (I think) and toe in represents the rear landing gear warping forward reducing its trail behind me he hang point. On a tricycle gear airplane toe in is desired ...

    Roger Bunny
    Roger Bunny I have a Go Pro 3 Black edition and am just starting to take some videos. I have been using a resolution of 1080 and 48fps however the play back is shimming. What resolution and fps have people had the most success with?

      Drew Pawlak Roger - I have two of the same cameras and get excellent results with 1080Px30fps and I use ProTune ON - this provides excellent color and resolution. I've seen the shimmy problem when playing through the GoPro app. Go Pros record in mp4 format and some video editing software can't import that directly - so you need to convert to AVI first. I haven't needed to do that. when does it shimmy - when playback from the gopro connected to PC via USB cable? If so you might want to copy the files to a local hard drive first. 48fps could also be throwing your playback software off. try capturing @ 30fps and see if that helps.

      Heather Davis Do you mean the wavy looks-like-it-is-underwater issue? If so, a videographer friend of mine suggested clamping the camera onto pipe insulation over whatever you are attaching it to. It helps dampen the vibration.

    The trike main wheel (toe-in/toe-out) alignment description does not change with the position of the observer as the description is always in reference to the front of the trike (or car). So is main wheel toe-in alignment desired? or toe-out? I find ...

    Rizzy: look at this image. Its hard to make people understand this just in words because the perspective is opposite depending on the position of the observer. But if you go behind the trike and look at your main tires you need to be angled out very ...

    Rizzy: Your taxi test is an invalid test to assure this is not a recurring issue. In fact you yourself said it started to do it only on "two" landings. Well, it should never ever do it. So the problem is still there. Note that this is not "shimmy" ...

    Rizzy. Use a straight edge on the sides of the wheels and see if the wheels are aligned. If you are seeing 3+ degrees of toe in you should replace the landing gear. Fast taxiing is NOT a test for duck walking. A trike that duck walks can taxi at ...

    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, ...
