Default Enforcer

Well my Enforcer is almost completed. Here is an update. All the wood work is complete, next is servos, radio equipment, retracts and covering. Here are some photos I took with my cell phone so the pics aren't the best. Thanks Bill Y, for your help with your advice and your pics.

Looking GOOD!

What motor you going with and how hard was it to install the retracts?

I had a ST 75 in mine. A Jett 90 would of been a lot better.

Actually, I am not the one building it. I have a person with a lot of experience putting it together. I spoke to several people that had this plane and they gave me their plans and ideas for the retract modification. I am going to put in a .76 gms for now. Once I get used to the plane I will throw in a DF.

Actually it's pretty simple to put in retracts. Just make a U shaped retract mount and install it. For the wheel wells I used cardboard from a roll of masking tape. I extended the nose and moved the nose gear forward. There is no reason why you can't mount a firewall type retract in the original location and have it retract forward. I used Spring Airs.

I don't have any real good shots of the retract mounts under construction Hopefully you'll get the idea from these. Also here's my two Enforcers to give you an idea of what you can do with one.
