Replacing Nose Wheel Retract - E-Flite Carbon-Z T-28 Trojan!


If anyone has replaced the Nose Wheel Retract, it may have been someone who modified it with something else because I just could not see any post that had someone replace the STOCK for STOCK nose wheel retract.

Let me tell me it was a BIG pain in the ASHE!

Certainly, this doesn't fall in any solid manner of a modification but, it does fall in a slight mod in terms of what you have to do in order to successfully replace a STOCK retract with ALL the disassembly and re-assembly!

Okay, I am beat from a couple of hours with playing ROPE-A-DOPE with this Nose Wheel Retracts!

It seems like grease may have played a part in the BURNING of the Nose Wheel retract Circuit board "or" someone took-off or landed the model in WET GRASS!

You need to look at the pretty pictures I have provided to see what I had to do and some recommendations!

Thanks for your patience with me.

When working with C and E clips, place the whole shebang in a clear baggie that will accommodate your hands and tools as well. When the inevitable slip happens, the clip will (most often) stay in the baggie.
