Making gear doors functional, the main rear doors was a challenge but I think I got it working right and totally effortless just using a metal rod and some plastic swivel bracket, the front doors are not fully scale because the full size has 3 doors but this will make it easier and drag less .

You're right. Now I noticed it, because my Rafale is 1/7

hey no worries, I bet that someone could use the post about the pipe for smaller rafale, and this seems to work well with the bvm rafale too
