Retracts finally arrived. These are great.No need for servos. The retracts have their own built in motor.

A number of people have complained about these kits. I find them great. The plans are slightly different to the cnc cut timber. but the parts fit well and it all seems solib. All balsa has been supplied including the 1/16 timber for covering and the cockpit etc. I wouldn't hesitate in buying another one. I like the Trojan. I'm waiting for my retracts to arrive so i've started on the fuse.

I scanned in the plans and completely redrawn them. I've altered the wings to show the retracts and also altered the nose to account for the different size motor. Also the original pans ran out by nearly 3mm compared to the cnc timber so allowances had to be made for that.
