Default Airfiels 800mm P51

I have an 800mm Airfield p51 Mustang and would like to install electric retracts. Any suggestions? The wing is approx. 21mm thick
where the retracts would be mounted. Some I have seen are about that thick and would protrude above the wing.



Thanks

I recently found retracts at Hobby King that claim they are 21mm tall. (Haven't received them yet. ) You'd have to cut very close to the top of the wing, and I guess leaving a little out the bottom, but I think that'll be hard to see in flight.

Thanks. I found a set at hobby parts in L.A. Ca. They are suppose to be approx. 19mm thick. Should arrive in the next couple of days. I'll let you know how the work.

The retracts will fit. They will be just below the bottom of the wing which will not effect how they work. I also installed flap servos (they work great). When I finish installing the retracts I'll post a video.

I'm having trouble trying to get the video on this thread. The retracts I got were purchased @ http://www.hobbypartz.com
If you want to give me your email I may be able to send it. We have a new computer (windows 8) and is very different
from the XP we use to have.
