Default Futaba 14 SG door sequencing with Robart electric retracts

Difficulties getting doors to wait until retracts are fully cycled
I am using the description in Malcolm Holt's great book to set up my sequencing. This is using the Motor function to drive two linked Program mixes for the retracts and the doors. The problem I'm facing is that the Robart electric rotating retracts for my 1/5 Corsair take about 12 seconds to fully cycle (6V battery). I am finding no ways to configure the program mixes so that the door servos will wait for this long until they start closing.

I would think I am not the only one to use a 14 SG with Robart electrics + gear doors. Please provide tips on how to get this to work. Thanks

We don't have any additional ideas. For such long retraction times, you may want to invest in one of the after-market landing gear door sequencers, which a lot of the jet flyers are using.

I got this working pretty good after following Malcom's advice. See here: http://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/....asp?th=110501
Thanks Malcolm!
