For Sale
Various Retracts, Mechanical and Pneumatic

I have four sets of retracts:

1. Spring Air 90 deg. pneumatic mains, 3/16 wire struts, in good condition, includes Rom Air tank. Don't appear to have ever been installed in an aircraft. $60 shipped CONUS.

2. Set of three Robart scale rotating mechanical retracts with scale drag link mechanism. The struts rotate 90 degrees as they retract, for use in Corsair, P40, Hellcat, Aero Commander, etc. All three of these are mains (none of them is a nose gear unit). Two of them appear to have never been used; they are in great condition. The third has been in an aicraft but still works fine. Consider it a spare. These are really nice units. $40 shipped CONUS.

3. Tri-gear set of Carl Goldberg retracts. These are nice, old-school, vintage retracts. They are technically new-in-box (they have never been used and I got them in the box, complete with instructions), but the box has seen better days. However, the retracts themselves are in excellent condition. The main units and nose unit retract 90 degrees and the nose unit is steerable. $15 shipped CONUS. SOLD PENDING PAYMENT
4. Flight Dynamics 1/2A retracts, new in package. These are ultra-adorable little mechanical main retracts in great condition. $10 shipped CONUS. SOLD PENDING PAYMENT

robart retracts

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,

I still have them. Neither the box nor the instructions give a recommended plane weight, but the strut size is 5/32". The instructions do say "Fits Corsairs by Top Flite, Royal, D&B, Jemco and P-40s by Top Flite and Flight Glass."

My guess is that they're appropriate for a .40-.60 plane, but not .90-1.20.

Damon
