Thread: elecrtic retracts

You will hear the motor turning and for a short while nothing appears to happen,,;;;;;this is when the unit is unlocking or locking the unit

21/01/2020 17:17:41

As I understand retracts, there not designed to hold the oleo and wheel up on the screw jack or to hold it down when deployed.

they are mechanically locked up and down

you need to study the mechanism to see how it works

I must have gone wrong no leadb40962fd-ce2a-4d9a-af94-0d33506ada32.jpeg

In my opinion

The ones that really count are the flying wires,ie from bottom of fuz and connected to the top wing at the struts.

on my DB Pup I only have flying wires doubled up on the front only,

They are sprung loaded,

All very basic installation,

I’m not the gentlest on the sticks so can say I’ve stressed tested it and found it to be ok

However if you have the split wing panel one full rigging may be a must,

Im very sceptical of any quick realease system

Looking great, well done

I’ve not fitted them to my rigging,

But you could probably just rig the plane and use cotton thread to secure them and dope over the cotton

Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale
11/12/2019 21:33:31

Eventually it’s all going to go wonky and you’ll have so much fun flying it you won’t care

11/12/2019 19:30:45

I’ve fitted top and bottom wings and set the cabaines when happy with their alignment fitted bracing into position

11/12/2019 18:12:17

Laser 180 are currently in stock it would be a good choice,,, but you will need to get your skates on if you want one

11/12/2019 17:46:09

That is a Svenson Stampe,,, the other diferance is the cowl had a removable front section

11/12/2019 17:44:48


11/12/2019 17:42:15

Hi Adrian,

The Svenson Stampe has a one piece bottom wing, the top wing has a centre section fixed to the cabaines and has two wing panels that plug in to it. And it ushally has a enclosed canopy that spreads across both front and rear cockpits

The Precedent Stampe has one piece wings top and bottom and can be in single or double open cockpits

Im not that familiar with the power output of the Satio, but It will prop be ok as the Stampe’s seem quite happy on a broad range of engine choice
