Great landing and T/O's. Are you using stock Landing gear? It seems to be taking the grass runway very well.

Agree great landings on the vid. I'd say 25% of my landings are that good wish I could pull em off like that everytime. Now edfs are a breeze to land for me but warbirds are hit or miss with me.

You guys are right about how great the Callie Graphics service is. Emailed my custom RAAF scheme to her last night, two A3 sheets being posted to me in Australia tomorrow (should be here next week). Amazing, and all for $25.

Very happy so far. Can't wait to see how they look on the plane.

Two thumbs up for Callie Graphics

Callie's work is really amazing. I don't pretend to know how she does what she does. I will be unveiling my SKYBOSS Corsair soon...Without Callie it would not be nearly as cool...My American Beauty P-51 in prior posts is all Callie.

Based on what Austin told me earlier and our discussion tonight I would prefer the V3 Retracts be sent, and I will do the needed trimming to get the fit to work. Are those available now and will they be sent to me this week?



Thank you for your help Raymond I greatly appreciate it and look forward to doing more business with you there.

My plesure, You can have your mustang retract replaced if you do not mind to trim the gear plastic base.

The original V1 OR V2 are supplied by the same supplier, we do not think it will do it better, so we change the old version to PZ-V2 version with larger demension and reliable PCB and structure. it can carry at least 7v Power input.

Not exactly sure I understood what you were saying? Did you mean there is a different replacement retract for the ones I was told by Melody there at fms to wait for?. If that if that is the truth....why have we had to wait so long for the replacements? This does not make sense?

What is this V2.1 retract I just heard of yesterday? And what makes it better than the origional V1 and V2?

Hi Moon

Nice to hear from you, we actually have our words to replace the old version retracts, the "PZ-V2" will be the the brand new one with overhauling structure to burden the old landing gear, and you can contact the local vendor for the replacement, sorry bothering you so much with the crap retracts. You can mount the retract to the P51 mounting base after trimming the base a little, but it totally can not be used on the p47 cos after the mount the landing gear will be not parallaled to each other, it seem freak.Thanks for your understanding. we need to sdjust the retact angle to less than 90 degree Keep in touching.

Thanks again.

Austin

主题: Fw: REPLACEMENT OF 1.7M P-51 ELECTRIC RETRACT GEAR

Austin, I received this today from Raymond about the new V3 Replacement retracts I was promised from FMS for the 3 sets of V2 burnt up retracts that were originally on my 1700 mm Mustangs and P-47. I was advised by FMS not to use the V1 and V2 retracts as they were found to be bad and not up to the tasks and had many problems which I documented. I was told by FMS (Melody) to wait and that FMS would send me the new developed V3 Retracts when they came out to replace these, and that they would be sent to the vendors and then sent out to me for replacements.

This is not what FMS has said about these on the Face Book Page?

What is going on? Please give me your input on this.

Regards,

Brandon Moon

Importance: High

I just received this email from Melody @ FMS instructing and asking me to contact you about the replacements need for the Replacement retracts I ordered from you a while back. When the new improved retracts are available and sent to you from FMS will you kindly send me my replacements needed for the burnt pair that I purchased from you a while back on order # 3898. The retract PCB on both of the retracts burn up when connected to my RX and powered up. I contacted FMS directly and they instructed me to contact you and wait for the new improved retracts to be finished some time in late June and distributed to the vendors to distribute out to us Consumers that had contacted them for replacements of faulty units that were smoke checking when used.

thank you and Kind Regards,

Brandon Moon

Below is copy of the email I received from Melody @ FMS

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Brandon,


Thank you for your mail. dear Brandon, the replaced retract may be ready at Mid June. We are not so sure now. We need to do more test to ensure the quality. You know both the consumer and FMS lost a lot for the poor V1 retract :-(


Besides, please kindly present your failure report to the distributor you bought the airplanes and the retract from. We will deliver the replaced retracts together to our distributors after released (there are so many failure report from America that we cannot send one by one. As I mentioned before the EMS fee from China to America is as expensive as the retract itself)) Hope we can have your kindly understanding.


Best regards,
Melody

This may help with some of the confusion regarding what we call V2/V3 retracts versus what FMS calls them. This was in response to my question about the V3 (new FMS retracts and V3 version of the 1700 P-51) from my contact at FMS...

As for the V3 P51, we just changed and updated the retract, now the retract performance is much better than before. We call it the V2 retract. Our FMS retract is still under moulding, and we need more time to test it, so I feel confused why you call it V3? Anyway, I will send you the V3 P51 in the next few days and please let me know what color you need? BTW, the Corsair will be ready in one week, everything is fine now, and I think it's time to release it. I know you can't wait to get one, me too. Please wait for my good news soon.

So it sounds to me that they consider their V3 P-51 to be with those larger and upgraded retracts Brandon has. My bet is we won't see the true, new FMS-made metal retracts until V4.

That's interesting? I was expecting the Metal ones that they posted on thier Face book page and called V3...(the ones that look like E-flite knock offs)

And that doesn't sound like what Austin wrote me?
