July 2011 features another photo taken during the 2008 TopGun Event in Lakeland Florida.
This time we feature a BVM Ultra Bandit captured during a knife edge flyby.
AirPower Models are pleased to present their all new retract units.
Made from Anodised aluminium these units feature air up and air down operation and are intended to use in models from 9kg / 20lbs up to 20kg / 45 lbs in weight. Designed to be retro fitted in many of today’s sport models these units are able to withstand operation from grass and tarmac fields.
The main pivot block is made from high quality 7075 aluminium and machined to accept a 1/2” oleo strut. Retained in a clamp type mount that ensures a secure fixing with less chance of the leg rotating. The pivot pin is deliberately oversized in a effort to make all three units more rugged. The nose retract come as standard with the steering mechanism pre fitted as well as the straightening spring, although this can easily be removed and replaced with a 1/2 inch Oleo leg.
The RA-215 are available as singular units or as a complete kit of 3 units.
AirPower’s RA-250 retract offers an ultra low profile that is only 27mm in height. This retract is able to take a 7/16″ diameter Strut. Also available is a standard gear wire in 3/16″ for Main Gears.
The Retract is constructed out of high quality aircraft grade 6061-T6 & 7075 aluminum. The RA-250 Retracts is designed to replace other manufacturers retract systems and are the strongest retractable landing gear in the industry for this size.
Full electric retract set for the CARF Spark.
The Tamjets / E-flite retract set is based on the original E-flite 60 – 120 Tricycle Electric Retracts set. However in order to support the weight of the Spark and make the retract unit more durable in general, Tamjets replaced the original E-flite trunion with an stronger unit machined out of high strength aluminum.
In addition this new trunion is now capable of utilizing the proven Tamjets trailing oleo struts for the CARF Spark.
The set further includes a set of Tamjet TJ Pro-Lite wheels and brakes to complete the combo.
