Default Viggen wing constraints

Firstly, the Viggen has a very thin wing at the section where the undercarriage attaches. I have a conventional retract set for an Xcalibur which I just dropped in for a comparison. Note the wing thickness at this location is around 25mm. Whereas a standard top mounted actuator retract unit is much more and unable to work with this kit design.

Retracts for an Xcalibur dropped in for comparison.

Too tall for a top mounted retract unit

About 35mm height on these units

The wing is 25mm maximum!
