Cool idea, running air lines and chasing leaks is a pain. The challenge will be fitting them in the thin wings of small edf jets but I don't know how thick they are. Looking forward to more info!

I really like this idea. eliminates the linkage problems. I'd really like to know weights, dimensions, and prices. Something like this built off a small (say HS-55 sized) servo would be great... rack and pinion gearing?

A litte more info and pics here
http://www.epf.com.tw/ensite/en_prod...ssRetract.html

IMHO, the mounting lugs on the housing limit these to foamies, or lightly build aircraft, if they are plastic. Based on the size of the wheel in the pics, the housing must be about 60x45x25mm (2.5x1.75x1")?

Size of DSR-46(Digital Sevoless Retract 46 class) as below:
L:46mm
W:27mm
H:24.5mm
The total weight with struct and scale rubber wheel about 50~55g/one. I hope it is ok for your aircraft.

Any plans to make a smaller version? That's too big for a parkflyer, but I really like the concept.

about the size of the GWS blue retracts would work, since there are kits designed around that size. The biggest problem I have with what's available now is strength - they just can't handle a rough landing. If you can solve that problem, you'll sell a lot of them.

Here's a couple pictures. The retracts I'm using here are the pneumatics sold at RC-Warbirds - http://www.rc-warbirds.com/product_i...roducts_id/330

They work well, but they're simply not strong enough - I've broken knuckles a few times already, I'm looking at getting them replaced in aluminum now. The wire's not thick enough either. They're rated to 600g plane weight but that's not realistic, they're not strong enough for that.

This link - http://www.rc-warbirds.com/images/rc...icro_plate.jpg - shows you the measurements of the pneumatic retracts, if that helps. Something in that same rough size would be great.

If you need a beta tester, keep me in mind.
