low profile retracts
Retired with lots of time. I build from plans because it occupies that excess time and it’s enjoyable. Finished my last one and decided I’d like to build a blackbird. (SR71) researched the net and discovered there aren't any plans out there so got it in my head I’d build one from the limited information I could find. Lots of guess work and creative engineering but progressing to what I believe is a fairly realistic model so far.
Now have a problem. The wings are so thin that I can’t find retracts short enough to fit the model, I have one inch max, and I believe I stretched that beyond what it should be. Anyone know of retracts less than 1” high that will support a model around 12 pounds? I can’t find them

Jay, I don't know of anything that thin, even for a lighter model. You are going to have to custom-make something. Bruce, at century Jets may be able to help.
Best of luck, sounds like an interesting build. Jeff

1" in electric I assume ? I can measure my FMS versions tonight , what do you have in the wing depth ?
is the 1" total strut or strut to inside of wing

What I was saying was we need some more details.
As you can see from the few suggestions you need
Retract rail max length
Strut max length
.Now I know that Hobby King has a ton of struts on there site , then you can match them to the proper base (retract)
Also try Park RC as he sells a lot of jets
