Not bad not bad, sitting at the observation deck at sydney airport on a break from work watching 737 after 737 depart building the determination to get in there flying them as opposed to loading they're smaller noisier counterparts.


Ming, any news on the 737?

Hey Ming,

given the large wingspan of almost 1.9m, will this plane have easily detachable wings for transport?

Regards,
Bernhard

Ming, can you gives us any more details on the retracts? Will they be servoless? Will they be pretty stout? Will they have any type of shock absorption?

Also any word on flaps for this plane? Or pre-hinged for flaps? Like it would be up to the builder to cut them out?

Can't wait to see the "roll out" of this bird!

do those electric retracts work with any of the scale struts? It would be a shame to have those skinny legs hanging out the bottom of the 737

the retract units look like change sun , I have these on my
parkzone me-109 they work great except becouse they were
designed for 90 degree - or stright the small set screw in
the plastic holder keep comming loose and causing the leg
of the gear to turn causing ground handleing problems.
I was able to drill a small bevel in the leg and use a pointed
set screw to stop this.

but with out that the gear legs will cause problems.
