Does anyone have a spare 160c actuator they would like to part with?
Let me know.

Thanks
Tony

I have a rudder BO for mine and they are saying mid FEB for it. Why not electrics. Have not had a quiver. I bought Robart airs some years ago for the TF GS kit and decided I didn't want to get into building it. I converted Robarts to Down and Locked electrics to include the tail wheel. I have the same one and love it. I did do most of the mods discussed in this and other threads.

I have read way too many posts with people having problems with Robart electrics

Has anybody had trouble communicating with Mile High RC? I've trying with both of their email addresses and phone number on their site to no vail. Maybe there is another phone than the one posted. They also don't answer the phone on Saturdays from 10:00 - 2:00 as advertised.
Thanks John

You got that right , that would be a really big bummer especially since when I ordered the plane I also ordered the Robart gear and servos to get the order over 1300.00 to get a 208.00 discount

Mine is the TF20-B we used it on the topflite corsair. Have to make new cowl monuts to use it. It gives you about 3/8" clearnce .

I have a great stock used one here. Just someone added a bunch of weight in the front of it. It's not busted up. Has the radial in it as well!

Well after 2 years of thinking about it, I decided to repair my damaged kit version Giant Corsair. I went out on a limb and bought the replacement wing for the ARF version hoping it will fit. And it does..just had to move the wing mounting plate on the fuse forward a bit. My gear fit right into the wing. Repaired the nose and tail of the fuse and today she is standing on her feet for the first time in 2 years.
