    Interesting discussion regarding the electric gear. Having fiddled with the F-15E gear a lot, I am certain you could use the electric conversion without worrying about the rotation mechanics .. they...

    Hi Kris, I got a set for my plane as well .. they are quite nicely made! Now I just have to figure out how to not break them off as I load and unload the plane from the trailer :-)

    Wow .. that's really cool. I do still have one Wren 180 with a ProJet ECU so it would be really useful to have one of those.

    The Behotec and BF units are indeed beautiful to look at and seem extremely well made. Unfortunate that they chose the ProJet ECU .. not that it's a bad ECU, I'm sure it's terrific but they have very...

    Richard,

    Do you think that if you are throttling the air with needle valves (as one does on the UP valves) that it matters having 4mm fittings? I have used the UP valves on a lot of planes, and...

    Congrats! So nice to see you get a bunch of great flights. I presume it's the mains that are hard to retract, presumably due to the air resistance when rotating? Is the nose gear working ok?
