Has anyone tried this?
I can see how four legs, where each leg has two nylon parts with a piece of, say 14ga. spring wire in a 'U' shape in the middle, would remain fairly light, but also absorb the shock of landings.
One nylon end would be attached to the frame, the u-shaped spring would be oriented horizontally, and the bottom leg portion would be attached to the bottom of the 'U'.
I use these that I made from the the tall crab leg gear. I cut them on a band saw and placed them on my chopper. They spring very well on hard landings.
I also used some pex pipe bent into a C shape for a hex I did. Great shock absorbtion however on harder landing it did bounce and sometimes flip.
