In stock form, they will not take the HET Suspension Strut.
You could shim it, but I happen to have a spare 60-120 E-Retract and it took the strut with no mods. Plus it's beefier.
Either way, you will have to modify the Nose Gear Formers to accept the E-Retract, but it's totally worth it.

Moving along


So Vic, gave me motivation to finish my Sniper up, mostly because he did the same colors as mine, at least on pictures it looks close. I was dreading putting the servos back in the tail only because of the way I mounted them, takes me about an hour to put in the six screws just because I have to do it blind. I cleaned up the hole in the tail and made a new more clean looking cover. I just have to connect all the clevices for the rudder and elevators, then make the new servo covers for the wing, I want to get a couple of flights before the Tucson Jet Rally, so Brent, you still coming?

I got a Pony too, but I just roll on about 250 Horsies.

Yes. I used heli 250 size ball link and rod. To make the gear door close perfectly you have to play with the servo arm size and rod lenght. Thanks.

My Elevator Servo Installation on Sniper XL90 V2 Stab


Somebody asked how I did the Elevator servo install on the newer version of the Horizontal Stabilizer.
Here's some pics on how I did it; very similar to what Ralph (CRCJA) did. Very clean, slop-free install.
I used two Hyperion DS13-TMB servos, 2-56 pushrods reinforced with carbon tube, along with Great Planes steel clevises and the stock adjustable elevator control horns.

Hi Ace
Not sure of the term "potted", on your servo mounting, do you mean the servos are wrapped on masking tape and epoxied to base as well as scewed?
Thanks
