Hey everybody. I received the HK retracts. As I was expecting they are inadequate for this weight of aircraft. Not to mention I would hate to have a failure and damage this model for that reason. However, the retracts "aren't bad". They have 3mm wire struts included and are functional and light weight. I would not hesitate to use them in a cheaper/lighter airplane knowing the risks. No way I'm putting these in an airplane that I just spent over $1000.00 on.

I will by flying by Habu this saturday or sunday and I will report back on the 5000 mah 6s 45c nano-tech pack.

tulz43,
I started at 107mm, which is about the midmoint of the recommended range. It worked well for the maiden. I am about 112mm now, and it feels right to me.

Good luck with the maiden!!!

I had the same problem with my build. As the clevis slid forward in the slide channel with gear up, the threaded push rod would hit the slide block. I just backed the push rod off like tulz43. My radio is a DX-7se. I tried setting up a mix to cancel nose gear steering with gear up but so far I have not figured out how to do it. Even though I am fairly savy with this radio.

If it is on it own channel you can. The mix would be

Gear - ( what channel you have it in ) on position 0 ( gear down ) you would have +100 and -100, on position 1 ( gear up ) you would have all 0

That should work

That's all you do with my Futaba 12FG
Set a dual rate on the Aux channel for the nose gear. Use the retract switch to control that dual rate.
Set the rate and expo you need with gear down... when the gear switch is up set the throw rate to 0 and 0. It's won't move when the gear is up.

I know it has been covered somewhat but has anyone found a better servo to run in these other than the JR sport MC35? I am up to modify the servo compartments to some extent but not much. Does anyone have a preference of metal gear over nylon on this particular plane?

Just wondering but are you using these servo's for the extra torque or simply for the metal gears? I am wondering which you feel is more important. I know in all of my Giant scale planes I use metal gear servo's but in a jet of this size and speed do you, or others, think that metal gears are required?
