Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a Pair of Scale Retracts for the Top Flite DC-3 Twin Engine Aircraft.
They are designed to look and function much like their full scale counterparts
on the real airplane. This retract unit has two front legs with scale-looking
cross-braces, and hinged at the midpoint to allow the gear to fold up.
The third leg is a Y-shaped part to stabilize and brace the gear in the
extended position. Each leg has hinged mounting plates at the top and the
retraction arm near the top of the left side main leg.

FEATURES

Stamped and Tubular Steel Construction with Steel Hinge Pins
Stainless Steel Retraction Cylinders made by Robart

INCLUDES

Two Main Gear Units w/Two Air Cylinders

REQUIREMENTS

To make a fully functioning retract system requires the following ...
Air Control Kit: ROBQ2302
Hand Pump: ROBQ2363
3" Wheels
Linkage to connect retract cylinder to gear leg:
4-40 threaded rods: GPMQ3743

SPECIFICATIONS

Width: 2-1/8"
Height (extended): 5-3/4"
