Has anyone modified the steering for the nose wheel, I have the version 3 and find the retracting action very unreliable.

You can make geometric adjustments to the horn/linkage if necessary. If the wheel isn't straight as it goes up, it will bind. For that reason (and independent steering trim) I have the steering on its own 8th channel that as soon as I flick the retract switch it disables the steering/rudder mix and centers it. Smooth sailing ever since. Good luck!

I have moved the steering servo to the 7th channel and added a mix but it seems the link rod between the servo and the strut is to short to allow correct operation.

I have the Z bend on the servo arm going through the arm from top side. This helped to provide spacing between the steering arm and linkage.
The spring plate plays an important role when the gear cycles so check it too.
Here are the pics.

Thanks Robert I have mine set up the same, I see you have removed the retract door like me, I could never get it to close properly. When your nose wheel is down and straight is your servo horn at 90 deg to the servo? My link is not long enough to allow the servo horn to be at 90 deg.
