Posting a couple photos during work breaks.
Here is the final setup of the new aluminum tube landing gear and spray boom.
You can see the gear now has square footing with both skid tubes perfectly flat on the ground.
The spray boom itself has good ground clearance as does the tail rotor so at this point I am very happy with the results and are ready for some serious spraying.

I did notice that to spray spiders effectively with the insecticide I will have to bend the tip of my spray nozzle up to allow easy spraying under the soffit of the roof overhang.
This can be done easily as the tube passing through the outer aluminum tubing is flexible PVC so I can bend it where it comes out of the aluminum tubing. Just don't know how many times it can be bent.
I may have to redesign the tip end to include a flexible tube to allow easy aiming of the spray.
Its just one steady evolution as I go...lots of fun imagineering the assembly.
