Parkzone P-47D Flaps and Retracts Information
I bought a new P-47D and it was delivered the same day I had back surgery. I am about to the point where I will get that box open and start getting things together.
However, I think I want retracts on it and that part number is easy enough to come up with but do I need any extensions or parts that don't come with the E Flite retracts?
Also, I want to set up flaps. Someone told me that Horizon sold a kit to do that but I don't see it. I know I need the two specified servos but what else do I need?
I have been trying to contact HH for information but so far that has proved to be impossible to get through via email or phone because you people are just buying too much in the way of RC from them these days! :rolleyes:
This information might be in the book but I have not opened the box yet and I want to give it about another week yet before I exercise the back much.
Then it's time to get back to some normal activities! :D

should be everything you need, the flaps pushrods sets come with the plane but can be bought as well

Great plane enjoy

OK and TNX. That first link you gave does nor work but I will assume it's for the retracts themselves.

KeninAZ 12-18-2013 10:14 PM

Hey, you show some pre bents which are not in stock right now but the HH video shows just using the stock units that come with the plane.
Perhaps a change has been made??

I bought the pre-bents so not sure about that and fixed the link

KeninAZ 12-19-2013 12:09 AM

OK, their video showed nothing about the pre bents but I talked to tech and they said it's better with them. So they are pretty cheap so I bought them and placed the order.
They said the pre bents, the only out of stock parts on my order for the flaps and retracts, will be in before 1 Jan anyway.
I hope to crack open the box on that one by then if my back heals up from the surgery and gets just a bit more movement.;)
I also have an ultra stick 25e to work on when I am better too.
I will be flying this winter, one way or the other! :ws:

Wow, quick service out of HH.
I ordered yesterday and the parts (all but the pre bents) will be her tomorrow.
48 hours to get parts is good this time of the year.

I smashed my P47 before I could install
