Well the issue is commercial retracts will weight more than your model.

I don't think anyone makes them for the Micro mosquito.

Hi
Welcome aboard
Pleased to meet you
I agreee with mike
Theres not much out there right now for UM aircraft
Most Um retracts are scratch built by the owner of the aircraft
These may work for you

Wow Hank there are really some clever folks out there. Wonder what the durability of those are? But than again - I guess they don't have much weight to support.

thanks guys, yeah that's what i was thinking as well, there isn't really much you can add to micro aircraft unless you fabricate them yourself. i'm thinking of buying a pair of du-bro hinges, some piano wire and a pair of linear servos and see what i can make of it.

just ordered spektrum 1.5g micro servos and GWS pico micro retracts. i hope the micro retracts aren't too heavy. here's to hoping my mossies will have retractable landing gear by next week!

p.s. the engine nacelles also house the dual aileron servos, and in between the motors there is enough space for the LG to retract into.
