Travel only has to be set beyond the transition activation point to start the sequence. There after its the stop tabs that do the rest or the overload time out.
I set mine on the same radio to +/- 150% and forget it.

Hot. Never has happened to me except when I mistakenly put a TX Lipo batt on a setup which cooked them with 9.9V. They can only take 6V. So if it got very hot and you were below this voltage.....Good thing they are cheap. Hassle to get HK to do something with them so I'd go for another set and use that as spare parts.

The ones i'm inquiring about are the 15.5 mm depth or 15 class

From what i've read,i know they had plastic trunnions and they tend to strip out. Allowing the strut to spin, and thats what i want.
I don't have much room in the froggy, and i know ill be pretty close to over taxing them as i'm expecting a 40oz ship. but its the only option i have if i want retracts on the bird.

Im assuming these are 3mm shafts. I cant find any info there.

I may just do some wire struts without scale struts seen in my rendition.
The only .15 class I know of is air: http://www.himodel.com/plane/%CE%A62...000-11000.html
Have you thought about modifying the duct above the retract?

I've had the DSR2-46T Titans on my FMS 1400 P-51 for a couple of years now, and haven't had a problem with them.



P-51 Landing Gear (3 min 30 sec)


Since I've built the P-51 with the DSRs there has been a vast improvement in the E-Tract industry. FMS is in the process of introducing their new E-Tracts before year's end.



I've written an entire page on my blog devoted to E-Tracts with all the latest info. "E-Tracts...The New Generation".

For 25 lb. you want Robart air retracts but be prepared to break out your wallet.

Those are the standard PZ or PingZheng. The small and medium sizes are about the same as Eflites but are so much cheaper if they do have minor issue they are so easily replaced.
46, 60-120 etc the Eflites are a difference class along with a few others.

Thanks Max ,
I've heard many good things about PW too so may go this route.

Those are the PZ-15094 E-Tracts. I primarily use them for tail wheel apps. Check your plane weight, these are rated for planes weighing 2kg.

Oh absolutely.... all of my experiences with Philip have always been better than expected. He would improve just about any hobby companies customer service if they hired him. For a time thier I thought he was a team of people cause he never seemed to sleep and I like that he provides what you needed notwhat he's going to make the most money off.

Thanks Gary and Max .

Oh so those are the guys who build all these.

I think this is the one I saw at PW site with the metal trunnion.
http://pz-servos.en.made-in-china.co...tal-Block.html

It looks like the 10 - 15 E Flite use a plastic trunnion even at $84 and their rotating set have been breaking left and right. I really want to support them but that seems too hard to overlook.

The plane should have an AUW less than 2 lbs and the gear will be for aft so the load will be different.

Looking for some electric retracts for a 13 lbs or so twin engine plane. Reviews for the 60-120 eflites are less than stellar. There's been lots of progress in electric retracts over the last couple of years. Would hate to buy another set of airs, but as of today, still looks like the best alternative...

Have you checked HK? They should have some heavy duty varieties that should come close to supporting a 13lb load. Honestly though, from what I have read and like you mentioned, electrics are still not as capable and reliable of supporting 12+ lbs when compared to air retracts. Something to think about...
