Have an esc hooked up to BL motor and futaba rx. Plugged into the channel 3 All good. Motor works. RX beeps.

Have another plane (scratchbuilt airliner) with servoless retracts. In fact, they are very similar to the Dynam retracts. 1) Directly plugged connector into rx. Works, no problem. 2) Plugged into different Y connector and then to rx. Works, no problem. Plugged into Dynam supplied Y connector. Works, no problem. So my other servoless retract works in a stand alone set-up

Tried again plugging C310 nose gear into Dynam Y connector. No go. Tried using other plane's Y connector. No go. Both Y connectors are good. Check

The mains work fine but the nose gear retract is dead on arrival. Not a budge, a grunt, groan. Nothing. Completely powerless.

I guess the next step is to contact Basil at Grayson

4th down...

Is the nose gear mounted in the plane, and if so is it in the down position or retracted?
