I use air in a lot of models, both warbirds and edf's i have a sequenced system on my tamjet and can say without doubt that as long as you take the extra 20 minutes to set them up they are great, my kits don't leak and work every time.

on the other hand i can deffinatly see the attraction with the electrics and will buy some in the future, the main plus i can see is that you don't have to have the pull-pull system associated with most air nose gears, this imo is the worst thing to have to deal with on a plane!!

I have seen electrics fail in my friend's planes a few times, he has chewed the worm gear in the nose wheel twice due to slightly heavy landings which i know air would have survived.

As has been said before i would deffinatly use electrics but there not perfect.

who here has tested the cheap HK/chinese electrics and what did you find out?
