T/F Corsair, E-Flite electric retracts

Just finished installing a set of the new E-Flite 90 degree rotating 60-120 sized electric retracts in my Top Flite Corsair. While they are a bit longer and deeper than the robart air retracts, the mod is fairly quick. I had to add some wood onto the rails, to raise the retracts clear of the leading edge, little over 1/8th of an inch will do. I then notched out the wing spar (scary!!!), to allow the gear to fit. There is some wiring that comes straight out the back, so it's got to be done. I then made a 3/8 in ply spar fishplate, that went between the aft side of the spar, and wheel well. Epoxied into place, and I think the wing is stronger than ever. Gear functions beautifully, really happy to finally have e-retracts that rotate. Next job, fit a set into my Top Flite P-40!
