RE: Electric Lanc Build

I'm dragging my thread up from the depths to add a newly minted video. I finally got around to catching it on film. At this point I would say I have about 30-40 flights on it.

RE: AVRO LANCASTER

I built the 72" inch version and used Spring Air retracts. They have been working great on my model. I did drill them out to use 5/32 wire instead of 1/8.

RE: Electric Lanc Build

Great, have fun building. I'm having a bit of trouble coming up with landing gear that can stand up to the 7# weight. I was hoping to get away with 1/8 inch wire but that was just a bit light. I need...
