HK electric retracts
 
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone use the Hobby King electric servoless retracts for models up to 4.7 kgms? I have a 60 size P-47 and need an 85*retract and this seems like a good choice.

Thanks

I know two people that love them.. one is my dad but he put them on a heavier plane than they were designed and broke them but they were working great until a less than ideal landing..I mentioned the plane was too heavy.. .. another guy has his in a H9 P-47.. LOVES EM!!

If he has them in a P-47, and since they are 90* reracts, do they look spread more than when sitting on the ground??

I thought as these units have overload protection which shuts the units down when they come against a stop, you could set them at the correct angle on the ground and they will shut down when they stop in the wheel wells

Search around, there are 85* electronic retracts out there.

I was being cost conscience as those were a pretty good value and they seem to work well based on comments I have read

That part I can't answer, but he never said anything to me about it..
