Thank you, but I did that.

I need to see the retract in the down and the up position, also measurements.

It's not a large model, but heavy for it's size.

My goal to to retro fit them for mains on floats and for the forward gear.

As the mains for floats, I would have used something like glider retracts --

Ray,

Thanks for that lead and link.

WOW! Could be a winner! However, doesn't look like it lowers far enough?

Are there others available for gliders?
