All the lights are going to be installed next week and waiting on some info on details on some products manufactures by Gary.
Gary ? Do you have the pictures available ? Did like several of the options you can offer......
I installed some electric rams for the gear doors, supplied by LADO, without much success.
These were coupled to a Powerbox Cockpit Which has an inbuilt sequencer.
The doors worked - but sometimes one or two wouldnt open - randomly not the same each time.
Sometime all would open sometimes not.
Tried for days to sort it but never found out what the issue was and daredn't risk a door not opening.
I have reverted back to air for the main doors only, which is much better.
Also, should a door not open for any reason, the Down & Locked electric retracts are powerful enough to push the door open.
With an electric set up you have no chance of opening the door, as it will be locked by the internal gears.
