I turned around the forward-looking-infrared radar (FLIR) and saw my right gear fully down, with the left and nose gear still retracted.
At first glance, the construction of the BHS power distribution gear is very similar to that of a standard epicyclic gear: Three planet gears are arrayed around a central sun pinion.
It involved simultaneous molding of three oddly shaped gears--one triangle, one square, and one oval--of DuPont's Delrin acetal and assembling them precisely with snap fits on a base plate so the three gears would intermesh smoothly.
