 Tricycle gear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tricycle gear describes a kind of aircraft undercarriage, or landing gear, arranged in a tricycle fashion.
Tricycle gear planes are also much easier to handle on the ground and significantly reduce the possibility of a ground loop.
Tricycle gear aircraft are easier to land because the attitude required to land on the main gear is the same as that required in the flare, and they are less vulnerable to crosswinds.

 Conveyor assemblies for detachable mounting to a tractor - Patent 4512687
In the preferred embodiment, the undercarriage couples to the side of the tractor through the use of the rear tractor hitch lug and a brace to the side of the tractor frame.
The undercarriage 10 is attached to the tractor through a short hinged rear hitch 18 which is pinned to the tractor drawbar and a side brace 19 which is pinned to a hitch lug 20 bolted on the front or side of the tractor frame.
The rear lift linkage members, in the form of bell cranks, pivot at the rear of the undercarriage frame and at the attachment point to the auger tube and are controlled by a double acting hydraulic cylinder 41 which is powered by the tractor hydraulics.

 MPM 1/72 'Kikka', by Carmel J Attard
All of these aircraft have several features in common, namely being twin engine, single seaters, having a tricycle undercarriage and best of all these will make a fine selection of the early jets which were the forerunners of today’s multi role combat aircraft.
Unlike the earlier release of the Kikka, which apparently had no forward undercarriage location mounting, there is now a finely moulded resin box like component, part PP7, which has a print inside to receive the nose wheel oleo.
Undercarriage detail include brass etch torque link that is added to the oleo as well as retraction struts for the wheel well doors.

Tail wheel equipped aircraft are fun to fly but their ground handling, take-off and landing characteristics differ from tricycle undercarriage aircraft.
Type endorsement for high performance aircraft equipped with higher horsepower engines and retractable undercarriage requires about 3 - 5 hours flight instruction and is usually coincident with a CSU endorsement.
Conversion to light twin engine aircraft equipped with retractable undercarriage requires about 5 - 8 hours flight instruction and can be combined and coincident with the CSU and retractable endorsements.

 Douglas XBT2D-1 Dauntless II
The XSB2D-1 was equipped with a tricycle undercarriage, rather unusual at the time for a carrier-based aircraft.
Like the SB2D, it had a tricycle undercarriage, but it was a much larger aircraft and was powered by a 28-cylinder Pratt and Whitney R-4360 radial engine driving contrarotating propellers.
These tests uncovered some serious problems with main undercarriage and wing skin failures, most of which took place when when the landing weights and landing sinking speeds were high.

Fixed wing aircraft are usually controlled with a “stick” or a “yoke”, which actuates control surfaces on the wings and the tail.
The undercarriage is equipped with seats for the occupants, an instrument panel, the landing gear, an engine with a propeller, and a fuel tank.
These types of aircraft are controlled by actuators that deform the wing, much like a skydiver maneuvers his or her canopy.

 Fujimi 1/72 A-4M Skyhawk, previewed by Scott Van Aken
The Skyhawk is of conventional post-WW2 design, with a low-mounted delta-like wing, tricycle undercarriage, and a single turbojet engine in the rear fuselage, with intakes on the fuselage sides.
Similarly the main undercarriage did not penetrate the main wing spar, being mounted so that when retracted only the wheel itself was inside the wing and the undercarriage struts were housed in a fairing below the lower wing surface.
This meant that the wing structure itself could be lighter for the same overall strength and combined with the lack of a (heavy) wing fold mechanism even more weight was saved.

 ALBEMARLES AT ARNHEM By Kenneth FRERE, 296 Squadron, RAF
With a tricycle undercarriage and large ‘dive-bomber’ flaps it was quite a contrast to its predecessor, the well-tried but out-of-date AW Whitley.
Like the Whitley, it was one of the “redundant bombers” which Winston Churchill urged his Air Staff to provide for his orphan child, the Airborne Forces.
Its tricycle undercarriage put it into a flying attitude even before it began to roll.
