    Airfield B-25 Right Retract

    Just finished my silver Airfield B-25 and all electric functions work fine, EXCEPT MY RIGHT RETRACT. Have sequenced my retracts
    six times and all doors and nose and left retract work fine. My RIGHT RETRACT REFUSES TO DROP DOWN.

    NEED HELP WHAT DO YOU ADVISE? BEST, LNL

    RE: Airfield B-25 Right Retract

    I don't have this plane so bare with...

    Failure of a retract to move is typically use to the mechanism hanging along the slide mechanism.

    Sometimes oiling this area is all that is required to fix the problem.

    Other times a light sanding to smooth out burrs, etc. will also fix the problem.

    There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    I pulled wiring harness out and pushed on the connectors, and flipped the retract switch a couple of times and, voila, all of the
    retracts worked. Let's hope this continues. Best, LNL

    RE: Airfield B-25 Right Retract

    I know some may complain that this will gunk up the works, but I've used pretroleum jelly to keep the mechanism lubricated on these plastic retracts.

    So far it seems to work well.
