So Cool!!! Multi Retract Gear

Postby Neons » Wed Feb 12, 2014 10:12 pm

I thought that this was neat enough to post it here. It looks so cool in flight. The link is a How To Do It. It is 20 minutes long so no need to watch it if you do not care to do an installation. The flight video is in Mp4 Quicktime. You may need to have the Free Quicktime loaded or just go to the link to 17:30 minutes

Neat Bob... these have been around for a while now... only problem is if they have issue and don't deploy/retract after a flight... you'll ruin your expensive camera, blades, etc... ;)

Yeh, I can see why some try making their own (many not all too successful from what I've read)... the ones you can buy already made are pretty darn expensive! ;) Hobby King (aka Hextronics) will soon be coming out with their own design... ask me how I know! :)
