Here is probably the most in depth article I have ever seen on using wire for landing gear. Also a great site to look at.

Good Advice and great article you just want to heat the wire to around 600 degrees F a few seconds in a torch to relieve the stress and let it cool, too hot and it will loose strength and and bend on landings.

Any landing you walk away from is a good one!
