the wash out is quite aggressive, but it is only noticeable close up on the ground.

So yesterday on final approach, one retract wouldn't come down. I circled a couple of more times flipping the gear switch a number of times throughout, but the one side was simply stuck. I ended up having to belly land it. Fortunately there's was a moderate head wind which allowed me to float it down very gently. The outcome was a minor scuff to the paint on the bottom front part of the fuse. That's it.

When I took the plane home, I unscrewed the retract from the mount to inspect it. Unmounted, it worked fine. I reinstalled it and it still works fine.

Any idea why it could have misbehaved while in flight?

is it just me that has an ok pair of retracts from dynam?

I have had 1 stick up, but re-cycling sorted it, that was once. and a long time ago. I found that it got stuck on the wheel well it self. by re-cycling freed it.

Jiggz - I too have (7) Dynam planes and rotate flights with them often.....never have issues with the landing gear....fly from DX6i/DX6 - Spektrum Recievers

What transmitter and receiver are you using in your Dynam models?

Copy That Jiggz - I am also flying via Spektrum Tx/Rx. The only retract issues I have had were after crashes an bent worm gear or loose "Y" cables.....once replaced...no issues noted
