    I have figured out how to make a linear actuator act like a suspension spring and a piston at the same time, allowing for landing gear designs like this to be easily build

    Awesome... but can you find a way to make it a lot stiffer, to then act something like a one part multi directional rotor/hinge that can carry weight... wanna reduce part count for a mech
