    i see from those pics you removed your weathering. Are you gonna try it again or leave it Au-Naturale?

    haha.. those pics are from a Warbird and Classics event nearby... I painted the terrible weathering the next day.. haha... still on the plane... I'm practicing with a new airbrush and compressor.. It's a Paasche gravity feed airbrush... I'll try again when I'm feeling a little more confident

ID:	2022656Don't know why this thread has been so quiet. Maidened mine today. Plane flew great - no issues. DLE 55 RA & Robart e gear. Needed about 10% down elev mix with flaps. CG was spot on. Easy to land.This will be a keeper.

    Well I flew mine a couple of sessions. It really is a nice flying airplane. I was just doing touch and goes the last time I flew it and it was just rock solid and I was greasing them on both wheel landings and three point. On about the 7th landing I let it get just a little too slow on short final and it snapped and went in. Didn't hurt the engine bent the gear truniun on the right gear but destroyed the wing and fuselage. I have the new one ready to go and will fly it this week. I'll keep the airspeed up on final from now on. Don

    Tricky those 3-pointers!
    I carrier landed my TF Corsair once trying to do that from about 3 feet high and all it did was break the tail gear mount blocks. It got slower than I expected and then mushed into a stall.

    Thats how you learn right!

    This thread really seemed to die off. I have a zero coming shortly, putting a dle-61 in it with Sierra main retracts. Also planning on doing the dynamic balsa cockpit, that looks really nice.

    I thought the Zero would be more popular but I guess not. It is a great flying airplane and looks great in the air. The only thing I don't like is the Monokote still wants to wrinkle even after several months. I would like to see an ARC version come out. Don

    I think one of the biggest turn offs for the plane are the price of the robart retracts. I went with sierra, cheaper than the robarts and made out of billet aluminum with a big air cylinder. Awesome gear, he has them in stock and ready to ship for this plane. I should get them next week and I will post pictures. I noticed some pictures with the wrinkles in the covering but when its going by at over 100mph you wont see them lol.

    Robarts Electric Retracts #ROBQ1649 - $649.95
    Robarts Pnuematic Retracts #ROBQ1 - $469.99

    Sierra 1/6 Scale Pnuematic Retracts #1/6 Zero Mains - $480 (for Yellow Models)
    Sierra 1/5 Scale Pnuematic Retracts #1/5 Zero Mains - $570 (for Ziroli Models)

    Not sure where Sierra retracts are cheaper; unless I'm quoting the wrong Sierra Retracts?

    The Sierra Pnuematic Retracts are cheaper than the Robart Electric Retracts, but so are the Robarts Pnuematic Retracts.

    Yeah they are different ones. Your looking at the true scale retracts for kits. He doesn't list the ones for the arf but he does have them

    I didn't know that, so when you ordered them, what was the Sierra Model Name/Number; Cost; be sure to post some pictures, if they are cheaper than Robarts than I'm in for a set as well, as long as they bolt right in or close to it with minimum Modifications needed.

    I don't know that there is a model number. Just call or email them and tell them you want retracts for the top flite zero arf. They were 425 and I will post pics when I get them.

    Those look awesome. That's the route I'll be going.
    "IF" I'd stop staring at them, I'd get more done to them.

    Much appreciate posting the picture, I agree they look great, I will be getting the Sierra's as well, post a picture of the Wheels if you can, When you get them mounted you will have to let us now if they were truly drop in or some modification to the mounting rails had to be done. Again thanks for posting, have a good Thanksgiving!

    Let me put it this way. I got everything in the picture plus the robart tail retract for this plane for less than robarts electric mains shipped. Looking at the plane earlier very very very little trimming will be required to make them fit. Mostly the hole in the rib where the air cylinder goes just because the sierra cylinder is twice the size of robart. I cant wait to see how they look on the plane.
