Here's a question on the retracts. I was originally planning for electric, but just realized that electric retracts might not go so well for the nose wheel. I mean it is sitting right next to the hot exhaust header inside an enclosed pan, almost touching. It definitely is hot there, and electric retracts and wires will not likey...

Should I spring for a set of MK SP mechanicals old style? The mains are already cut out in the wings and MKs will drop in. Or should I go with electrics and make a heat shield for the nose gear? It's going to be a lot to take for the nose retracts, heat and vibration and all... tough life! What do you guys think?

Kevin I think you had the kawasaki Atlanta with e-flite electric retracts?
