So, how do I do it? I've looked for tutorials to rig landing gear and the closest I've come is robotic arms. Maybe that'll work, but I haven't figured it out yet.
If you look at the attached pic I drew a VERY crude diagram of the gear I'm talking about. A few things of note: the purple circle is the main pivot point, the light blue circle is a sliding pivot the retracts down the green track as the gear retracts and the yellow block is the landing pad.
I feel like I'm missing something really simple, but I am getting so aggravated I'm about to throw my computer through the window.
