Top Flite DC-3 Electric Retracts (1 min 3 sec)


Spectrum A7000 Electric Retracts.

I've read good and not so good reviews on these.

I'm still not convinced that a(any) servo will hold with a hard landing. But not to say it will not.

And if they do, might be my next purchase.

...and if you don't want to mess with a pneumatic system, you can buy electric actuators that replace the air cylinders. This is what I did for my Shindin Machining retracts for my 1/5 Bf-109, and the actuators from Lado Tech worked great. Not cheap, but good quality stuff.
