My bad ITTD! I did not watch the video. From the screenshot, it looked like a takeoff picture.

Is it possible to disassemble the retract to obtain the parts you need to fix the nose retract? Surely they use the same motors and drive parts.
Something is getting "lost in translation" at HK!

Lost in translation? BS! They speak english! It's just a poorly managed company. Plenty of examples to prove this.

HK is going through lot of pain and restructuring now. If you noticed there are no new items for a couple of months and no re-stocking. Even nobody to remove September cyber sale from the website.
And no Hobbyking_Ian...

I did! I had to scavenge a 5mm post from another retract, I also made one with a 4.7mm post I'm good to go, just want the one I ordered twice!

Sorry to hear Hobbyking Ian has left, he was the best rep they’ve had since Stuart.
