Well after a bit of searching I went for it. Didn't have to remove as much material as I thought and plenty of strength left in the bearer.

Thought I'd post a picture just in case anyone else went down the same route. Think I'm going to look at fitting the front retract before glueing the centre wing in place. I think the model is easier to handle at the moment.
Cheers,
Simon

Simon,
I removed about the same amount of material from the retract bearer with BVM 3/16" wire struts with no problems-after 4 seasons of heavy flight use. I agree on fitting the nose retract unit before gluing the center wing section to the fuselage. This step took quite a bit of thought to work out properly. I chose to fit a belly mount Spring Air nose retract to some "packers" to achieve a favorable stance for takeoffs and landings and keep the retract unit internal to the fuselage. Also raked the nose strut rearward for some castering action with a small bend above the nose wheel. You'll truly enjoy flying this Nano when finally complete.
Rgrds,

She is all done.





Just done the calcs and she needs 40g of lead in the nose which is not too bad. Got everything mounted forwards, but with the electric retracts there are not cyclinders or valves up the front. Hopefully get the motors fired up and checked in the week ready for her maiden.

Cheers,
Simon
