RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet
I am starting to experience some gear retraction issues that I wonder if someone might have some ideas about. I am using the Airpower 250 retracts, Pro-lynx struts and an Airpower EV-2U eletronic valve for operation.
On the ground, all three gear operate normally up and down and even work with about 40psi. I charge to about 100 psi for flight. After takeoff, the nose and left main retract instantly when I hit the switch. The right main will stay down as along as 3-4 seconds and then it retracts. This has been occuring for sometime now but has never failed to go up. Sunday, after takeoff, the right main would not retract. I cycled the gear several times an the right main would not move even inverted and at slow airspeeds. After the flight, with only 40psi remaining after all the inflight cycles, the right main retracted normally in the pit area when tested. I charged to 120psi and flew again. The right main retracted, but again, with a delay.
Anybody have anyone ideas?
