Thanks for the link.

Very affordable option compaired to D&L. Heck even compaired to some of the air powered options it is still afordable. When I get closer to my project I'll give them a call.

Thanks!!

I'm looking at the E-flite electronic retracts (pretty much the same as the ones linked above, just smaller). Anyone know if these will work with a sequencer? I want to install gear doors on the little E-flite Bonanza but would need to sequence them with the gear for scale appearance.

I believe Jomar make a product for that, but could be wrong. do the E-Flite not come with some sort of stagger feature?

Does anubody have electrical charasteristics of these boards (regular, mini, large)? Does anybody know the current stall value?

Thanks

I know it has been some time since the video of your Cessnawas posted, it shows the system works and does what most modellers using retracts would want. Can you tell us which are the latest boards and the current software used? I'm planning to build my own retracts for a 1/6 scale Skyhawk A4-F so can easily incorporate the geared electric motor into the mechanism. If I have a list of the components for the electronics and the current code I have a friend who can help me assemble it, electronics are not my forte but I can use a soldering iron..

However if you have commercialised the electronics into a single controller is it available for purchase?

PS I also sent you a PM but looking at what I sent I clearly should have worn my glasses, so apologies for the mis-types.

I have a set of robart 150 retracts. They are using basically the same system as these
e retracts. The one problem I have had with the robart is the final gear on the gearmotor strips out. I was wondering if anyone knew what gearmotor robart is using? If you could recommend a specific gearmotor that I could replace the ones in the robart actuator with. I feel like there has to be a better gearmotor that would last much longer.
