Mpizpilot, thanks for your response. For the record, I didn't say the last few thread pages were scary. I said "kind of scary...the FIRST few pages. "

To all: are there others out there who have received retracts in 2 weeks or less?

Where is the factory now? France??

I got two sets of retracts to Los Angeles, Ca. in about 7-10 days. Do not remember. No problem. Bullet prof. Plan you buy two more sets soon.

Hi Modelers,
a few words to introduce you our new brake system:

it's now clear the revolution it's here, in this iced marked , who haven't seen any evolution since several years, Lado is proud to introduce you the first brake system fully self sufficient, only a 6kg servos is necessary to brake your airplane , and no matter what weight is it.( an A-10 mibo it's close to be brake by our brakes.)

you didn't need to bring separate power supply ( 3 or 4 s lipo like with electric brakes) no control card, no electrical noise this system will be the most lighter on the market.
we are lilght because we stay with air, but the secret is low pressure system, that will not get leaks, as they're no pressure.... no pressure= no leaks and as simple to use as now.
it will be available as replacement for your existing system before the end of the year in 30/40/70mm, some of you have seen it in function during Jetpower 2012.
you can be confident in us, as ever our system will be the best in the market, like our retracts.




our system it's just an revolution.

stay tuned to learn more this week you will see an video in use.

Picked up a set of Rev B 85 degree retracts. Can someone tell me how to replace struts? No set screws visable. Looks like the housing may have to come apart but want to check first.

Thanks

HI Dawhale, the screws are on the trunions, try to open it and you will see them inside.

Chris, what happened with your US Distributor Magnum-RC?

You REALLY need a US distributor for these retracts, you're losing out on a REALLY big market here simply because these retracts aren't being advertised in the US as far as I can tell. []

Chris, you also really need US distrubutor(s) who can sell on both Ebay and Amazon... both sites are wildly popular on this side of the pond!

Regards and best wishes!

Mr Lado, what's your 3D solid modelling system? I use Solidworks, and your rendering looks like that too.

Today I checked Lado-Tech.net site... neither of the US Distributors listed actually carries LADO retracts on their websites. What's the deal Chris?

Hi Christophe31,

It seems Altecare RC only has the standard 90 degree RS333 retract. No accessories (trunions or gears) or any other lado retracts. You really need to find another dealer in the US.

I need some of your new rotating gears for the RS333's. These are $30 from your website but shipping is ~$40

Santa is dead???? Awful news. Or did I translate that wrong?

No matter what, those struts are gorgeous in any language.

Merry Christmas to you too. And all Warbirders. We can have Christmas all year long, but this official one is good too.

Happy New Year y'all
