Can a computer radio limit the travel of a 90-degree electronic retract to 85 degrees? Thank you.

Re: Electric retracts
No you cannot. The retract control circuitry and mechanism geometry control the total sweep angle.
Here is some info I posted on another forum regarding how these work:
In a perfect world you want that slider to be resting at 90 degrees to the gear pivot drive pin so that the forces on the slider are perpendicular. In simple terms the loads are NOT along the slider travel axis and therefore cannot force the slider to move and the gear to then rotate. With servoless retracts which use a worm gear drive this also avoids loads on the worm gear and end supports.
Hope that helps.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!
