Question
10-15 Size ROTATING electric retracts?

I have 4.5 pound, .15 size Aero Commander. I want to add retracts to it.

Does anyone make small, .10-.15 size electric retracts that rotate so the wheel will lift to the back while turning the tire flat to the wing?

Simply place the wheel on the inside of the strut when mounting, I am not aware of any retracts fitting your description.

Lander also offers electric rotating retracts, like the P-40 or Corsair uses.

Check out PW-RC for em, Philip is great to deal with.

Wow, you are right about Philip! He is customizing a set of retracts to exactly the specs I need! Far less expensive (by half!) than anywhere else too.

Thanks for the tip!!

Is he in Hong Kong? I haven't asked but I'm guessing my order will ship from overseas.

Sorry for the belated reply. Yes he's in HK, but as you are finding out, he's super to deal with. And you'll get your stuff fairly fast from him. Bout the only supplier I know of that tests stuff before he sends it out.
