Park Zone P-47 Retractable Tail Wheel

I made a quick video this morning of the retracting tail wheel in action. This is a great mod for the P-47 and really cleans up the look in the air.

The mod uses a Robart # 122 Retractable Tail wheel assembly. I also used a 3/4" inch Dubro wheel to keep the size down. It's not as scale looking as another small wheel I had for the mod, but it's smaller. The smaller wheel should help with the nose overs as well as the spacers on the backside of the main gear.

I programed a 3 sec delay in my DX8 Tx, which slows down the action of the wheel to more scale proportions. it could maybe use a few more seconds.
