Would the JR Sport MN48 servo be acceptable as a steering servo?

Is there anyone who could give me the strut lengths for the intro? I've been talking to Spring Air and I like his retracts and he also has trailing link struts. I looked at the dreamworks gear and the strut length they gave me for the nose seemed way to short. Any help would be greatly appreciated especially is you are using trailing link gear. Thanks in advance.

No hurry. I would just appreciate the info. Just need to know the strut lengths so I don't order some that are to short or to long. Thanks again.

Jason,

Be very confident with the struts from Dreamworks. They are the best in the market and all of my Boomerang Jets have used their struts. They can take the punishment on and off grass fields, and their customer service is the best in the business!!!

I don't doubt the quality of Dreamworks retracts, but the Intro was designed for a firewall mounted nose wheel retract. That is why I am trying to find a set of trailing link that will work in the Spring Air retract units since they have a set that is made for firewall mounting. I just need the lengths of the struts.

Thanks extra. The difference is mine nose gear is set up for firewall mount and not rail mounted like yours. So my nose wheel actually will retract forward instead of to the rear.

Anyone got any idea of aerofoil used on intro looks like a naca 0018 also anyone got any pics of makeup of wing or still has broken wing that can see inside.
I picked up a damaged intro second hand fuse and centre section is ok apart from some nose damage, but missing one wing so I was going to build one, can get rough idea from good one I have but not sure make up forward of spars, looks fairly standard just wanted to make sure before I start, also if could get profile would save a lot of work making ribs
