Yeh Dom! Also if you get water in them they can stop working aswel as they are not water proof mechanical retracts!! But must say ther a lot Easier to operate then air retracts also a lot lighter!! If they do get damaged or stop working at some point in future I'd probably change them to air jet1a boomerang sprint or nano retracts! Along with brakes

Those eFlite retracts are much under-rated. I use them on the mains for my Futura. Only small issue you can get with them is if the two sides of the frame aren't tight together. If not, the circuit board that has the micro-switches can drop out of the grooves in the two sides of the frame...and then the whole thing don't work.
Dominic,

What size is your futura? Im glad ive had the chance to play woth both sizes of the eflite retracts ... not sure what the maximum weight is for the ones fitted to the Citation.

Scott.

Dude the eflite 80-120 size electric retracts can hold models up to 15lb weight which is just over 6kg I think we shud be ok the weight off Cessna wet I think (guess) may be around 14-16lb that's just a guess however its a scale plane I'm not looking for vertical performance just scale flying Doms futara is nice dude Iv seen it

In my opinion I will never buy anything from Nitroplanes after my one experience. Junk Chinese sub standard stuff from the glue, wood to electronics to the worst customer service you will ever receive. Sure the website looks so good but you get what you pay for and you ain't paying for much more than kindling wood or foam to make your mix of napalm. I buy usa only stuff and have great service out of it all.

True nitro planes are tossors! Lol however they do not ship to Europe as they wouldn't ship me the citation as they kept saying its to big to ship to the uk that's rubbish!! I found general hobby from USA selling the same plane they shipped it out to me Nxt day week later I had it sitting at home!! I must agree it wasn't the best of kit in terms of construction ply was weak many other minor faults but awar dude scot has made the citation solid enuff to accept the two turbines

Really all I need to do is ballance it and glue and hinge the rudder, then test it all once or twice then its all yours ... ive mounted the regulator and the RX now and sorted the bottom hatch ... ill say it again though, this kit is ****e!

Never going to do another Nitroplanes kit! [:'(]

Yeh the nitro planes kits are crappy thers hardly any civilian aircrafts kits on the market these days and if ther is its just crappy foam which really is a shame I guess airliners civilian aircrafts thers no much demand for them as you can not do much with them except fly them in circuits and land where's a f16 you can do the book! I stil think the civilian scale planes look good in the air if it's flown the way it shud be!! anyway sweet work dude glad it's almost done lets hope all the hard work pays off on its maiden flight yeh let me knw how the taxi tests go

Raj,

The hero is complete apart from the RX batteries which you havent supplied so the mounts are not there for them either ... the UAW with a slight rearward CG (approx 110 - 115mm) less fuel is 15lbs which is comparable with the electric boys ...

The combined weight of the RX batteries needs to be between 350grams and 400 grams (the digi switch has two inputs etc, so two batteries)

Scott.

Yeah, this one has been fun - good to have the chance to do a twin turbine project ... when you getting the G500 up to be and those 20sx's? Hoping that the G500 is better quality ...

We do need to get together to do the taxi tests ... but when? Will be tough fitting it around work ...

nice build! well done scott!

Mate, please be there when Raj flys it for the first time ... Ive checked it all over more than twice but a fresh pair of eyes wouldnt hurt ... ive left the markings on it for the CG - check it if you could (dry) Also I have sent it back with the manual ... check the deflections are going the correct way and the correct amount once Raj has programmed it to his his DX7(we dont want any text book misshaps) And take some video
(Mix 6 should be Elevator to AUX2 with AUX switch dissabled)

This has taken about 60 odd hours believe it or not!

Scott.
