Thanks for your valuable input and info. Dean is correct, I had a low strut and was flying from FD51 to KMTH to have it serviced (A short ~ 5 min. flight). If I had the wisdom of other, more seasoned Meyers owners, I would have made the flight with the gear down. Lesson learned, all be it an expensive one.
The good news is the damage was minimal so, N489C will fly again!
There is video of the landing, if someone can tell me how to post it.
