LOL Thanks It saved my bacon this weekend. My engine went out as I was clearing the end of the field, and I had to turn the plane around to keep it from going onto a road. Of course, it stalled about 10 feet up and came down flat on the gear. It bounced straight back up about 4 feet, and came down with no damage. All I could do was laugh

Couldn't resist a chance to show it. Landers Mustang is as common as Cubs at the field, but it must be one of the prettiest color scheme for a plane. I love this TF P-51 and have been flying it now for 13 yrs.

That is a great looking B model. Is that a hand carved spinner? Is it a flying spinner? Also, I have heard all the complaints that CJM retracts are of poor quality but noone ever seems to say why. Why are they of poor quality?

Well, Don't know if this is the place or not. I've written Century Jet Models and told them about my retracts. I haven't heard a word back from them.

Here's my issues.

1. Pivot block is sloppy. Retracts move up to 1/4 at the wheel when locked down.

2. Strut does not keep the wheel straight. They don't have any pins, set screws to hold the wheel from turning. They rely on the scissors and some locktite. My wheels will spin around and around. I've had to have lenny fix them for me.

my pathetic story.

On the first landing of my p51 the scissors popped off and the retracts went through the wing. CJM said it was my fault. I sent the retracts in for repair and they "updated" my set with their new heavy duty scissor. It's supposed to keep the wheel from turning. Hold on, I thought it was my fault? The new scissors are much stronger but now my wheel spins around because the loctite isn't holding the wheel straight. that's right, loctite is what's keeping the lower offset fork attached to the soft steel lower strut. OUCH!

my .02 cents.

Well that answers my question. It is interesting that I have E-mailed them a couple of times and each time they responded very quickley? Well anyway I don't want to derail this site any more than I already have. Great looking Mustangs to you all. I would like to do a Brian Taylor Mustang someday but that TF "B" model sure is striking.

Default cjm retracts

SVX,

I just recieved my new lower struts from Lenny at shindin machine. I'm going to test them out on saturday. They should keep the wheel from turning.
