Default Just bought a DC F-20 and I have some questions.

I just purchased what may be one of the last F-20's available straight from Direct Connection. Should be here Friday or Saturday.

I am trying to decide what retracts to use. Mechanical or Pneumatic. And what brand. The guy on the phone suggested Hobbico's.
Is there any instructions with the kit [ARC] about retract installation?


Have'nt picked an engine yet either but will probably be a Rossi. Unless Santa is especially generous and let's me go with a Jett .50!!

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Nice plane. May i suggest a Jett.50? I also use simple Hobbico mechanicals with no problems. Not a heck of alot of room for a air tank on spring airs or robart. More hassle than its worth.
