    If people let me know of issues I can generally fix them pretty quickly.
    i guess i have to check the chat a bit more often, and thanks for the reply...the pylons i downloaded from thingiverse, are nice but they dont seem to fit the wings of my Gripen that well (not sure if those were yours, are you using the same nick there, have to check the download files )...it might be a bit hard to explain with my limited english but i try anyway ... they seem to sit slightly angled inwards on the wings if you look from the fornt i mean, and they also do not fit that good to the round or cylindircal shaped parts that protrude out of wing near the rear of the wing...at least on my Gripen they dont..

      Mine were not facing inwards, but I think that is down to how you mount the brackets into the wings. also the cut out at the rear of the pylons did interfere with the fairing on the underside of the wings but using a bit of heat i was able to shape the pylon around them.

        Agree on the angle inherited from the brackets in the wings. Mine have about 2mm of clearance around the fairing (bulge). Funny!

            -------
            Freewing Landing Gear Steering Arm Type A - Metal - N512

            These are upgrade parts for the following Freewing aircraft:
            • Dual 64mm EDF Jets (A-10)
            • 70mm EDF Jets
            • 80mm EDF Jets
            --------
            None of the other types show JAS39 as a special version.​
            i ordered both A and F as i wasn't sure A was right given where the grub screw was on the arm. turns out it was a good idea as it looks like its in fact F you need not A ..
            Will leave feedback on the website and see if i can get the Gripen added to the list of planes under F
