Hi Shell shock

I am considering the H9 P47 (among others) and pricing up the options before I pass it by the finance manager. Can you advise if these are a drop- in fit or was there was any adaption needed?

Thanks

Impact - the H9 P-47 is predrilled with blind nuts installed for the eFlite retracts. I can tell you that the FMS retracts will install with no modification other than shimming them with a couple small washers. The hole pattern is identical. Below is a pic of mine installed.

If you use these new ones from MRC, you would have to drill some new holes for sure. Definitely not a deal breaker because they look to be more robust than the FMS retracts... a good trade off IMO.

Also, if you get the H9 P-47, I would recommend not getting the optional oleo struts that they sell. The ones that come included with the plane for the fixed gear are perfectly fine to work with the retracts as well

Chap I know was coming over to sell me a King Kobra (Sig plane, not the warbird). He shows up with that in his van as well and offers me a package deal. I hadn’t planned on adding any new warbirds just now... but sometimes you just gotta carpe diem. Or in this case carpe airplane

We’ve only got at best 6 more weeks of decent flying weather, so this will go into the basement for now.
