    I see the Eflite retracts are listed as replacements but the holes dont lign up 100% and you get splitting when you try mounting them. Will there be updated parts to accomodate these retracts?

    So far I am planning to use a 10 Channel Lemon RX with some Y cables for elevators and flaps. So for some flexibility in the setup I am using clevice at one end of eack push rod.

    I agree with FiatSpigno. I have been printing and learning for 2 years to get parts i would put in the air. Take a short cut and buy a Prusa I3 from the start. That will save you 6 months worth of pain and talk to a lot of people (search for local groups ). Good luck.

    Option D looks like the closest fit for the eflite retracts. However they are not a neat fit as the holes dont quite line up. A shim will be required under the retracts to allow them to sit flat on the housing and sit clear of the base of the housing. The best solution would be an Option E version. Aligning the holes and build the mounting points where the retract sits in the housing by about 2mm. About 2 minutes work if you have the original design files.

    I have the Eflite retracts as well. So far of the 2 completed prints Option A is close. Will see what happens when prints for Option C and D are completed.

    Mine did that too. I downloaded the factory files into S3D and recreated the GCODE

    I am using Fusion 360…but it is not easy for beginners but getting there. So far I have managed to design and print ailerons to modify a Lanyu ASW28. Wingtips, rudder and elevators will be next. It has taken about a month to get this far. Good luck!

    Here is the first photo of the wing layout with ailerons and flaps. I need a better camera and back ground but this will do. Tail photo to come next

    Hi All,
    I have just about all the parts printed and can take a few photos with the parts layed out so people can get a feel for how it goes together.
    Cheers
    Tom
