Retracts should be good to go now. I also set up an elevator flap mix because when I put in some flaps on the last flight it did pitch up a little. So now when flaps are put down a tiny bit of down elevator will be applyed.
IIRC there's nothing in the manual about it. If its the #11 808 camera there's a thread about it. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1362692 specifically post #12.

Hi Eddie,

Still at 80mm ..or 83% FSA....a 90mm opening is about 101% FSA. and I still have the cheater holes. I may open up just a little to around 82mm and experiment a little with the cheaters now.

Vegas runway is 700 feet. I am carrying a little more speed than I need right now and will start slowing it down on landings in the next few flights.

That shouldn't be a problem. Let's see, it weighs what? 35 lbs? So we only need about 175 lbs pull. I'll hook up 5 bungees together and we will get all the pilots there to help pull it out. Yep, I think it's doable. Better put a really strong hook on it Andy!

Or brakes... What a cool flight! You know? They define the "minimum flying area" for planes as "athletics field", "club filed", etc. yours need to be defined as "dry lake field"...
