I plan to add dual wheel struts with scale wheel well doors.
When you figure out the doors let me know. I have already built int he H-gear & I have 2 double head servos from the HC Hobby mozzie gear doors. Just have to figure out how to shape/build a pair of doors that fit each wheel well.

Finally got mine ready for its maiden. Hopefully tomarrow the weather Gods smile.
Used two Scorpion 36-20-10's with 11x5 woodies. Set the Scorpion speed controls to soft start which is really cool on twins. Works well in the air also. I am flying with a 4 cell 4000mah li-po. Used twin servos on the retracts also. The flaps cycle in 2 seconds to full flaps with 10% down elevator mix.
Not a bad bird for an arf. The pilots are lame but what do you expect for under 2 bills.

Hi everyone, I picked one of these up a few months ago and I'm assembling now, I installed electirc retracts and I'm wondering if anyone has built retract doors,it would sure dress it up and reduce drag. if so let me know how you did it, I picked up some hinges but the fiberglass thats been cutout to make the openning seems a little thin to use for the doors, thanks Doug
