Taft Viper jet retract question please.

Hello.

I bought the 90mm Taft viper and it's awesome!
Very happy with it and flies beautifully !

I have a question which I hope someone can help me with please.

The rear gear doors close with the gears down.
Which means they will open, gear up and doors close again.

I note on many videos on YouTube the doors are actually on the open position while gears are down, mine will close regardless on gear up or down.

If there anyway I can keep my doors open while gears are in the down position?

Any help , advise or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Jason

If you have a fancy radio you can put the door servo's on a separate channel and program them for doors open with the gear down. The kit comes with a sequencer that is programmed to do what it does.

You could also acquire a different sequencer.
