Just bend the wire? Grab the collett on the end of the wheel with some pliers, support the main leg and twist.

Hi Guys.
I love this plane.
Takes time getting used too her size though. she is huge
I have 6 flights with her now and she looks great.
I use 2x4 cell 4000mah, but she still needs some additional nose weight.
I have ordered 2x 5000mah, and hope too get cg at 8-9 cm.
Have not tried stock prop yet, apc 18x12 works great.
Robart 3-3/4" scale tread wheels mounted.
Pz v2 (716) retracts and hk oleo struts shipping my way.
After some bad landings, Flap servo (red one) lost some teeth,
prop adapter Little off balance.
Do anyone know where too get spare adapter and reversed servo.
More great videos please.I will make videos when warmer.

greetings from Norway

Sir, before I go and break something,,, can you exsplain in detail how to do this. Yes, this is only my second bird and first with retrax I just finished it today and took it on the road in front of my home to check the rear wheel set up. It did go to the left while rolling... and the tow on the left tire is towed out so that isn't helping. I was told that I should have both front tires towed slightly inward??? Is this true, and can you please tell me in detail how to fix my tow?

Going left could be from prop torque also.
Some like the wheels facing in to help slow it down, I like mine turned out a little to help slow down the plane on roll out.
Pull the retract out and on the sides is small hole (don't remmber size) then use one or two small screws as set screws. Maybe mark the position before pulling out so the wheels are lined up like you want when you re install.
Or pull it out and bend the wire strut to the proper angle, if you try it while installed you could pull it out of the plane by accident (I know from exp)

I just ordered an APC 18x12x2 yesterday to try out on 4S 8800mAh 4P. I'll post up some results when I bolt it on.

Time?

What kind of flying time can I expect from the battery pack system you are using

I have to admit I haven't timed one since I went to this prop. I fly til I'm ready to land and I've gotten two flights from the pack each time. I'll try to remember to set a timer the next time.
