VQ Dago Red P51D Mustang...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I picked up the title plane and am looking at installing the retracts (it is a Mustang afterall). It's the 40 size. I looked at tower hobbies but am totally lost as to what I need exactly. I bpught it in Kansas at the time in a store called "The Hangar". The guy there pointed out what everyone was using for retracts, but I can't remember what is was (there were 2 items). The retracts and the struts maybe?? Anyway if someone has this plane with retracts, or have an idea of what I need, any help would be appreciated. Don't want to go cheap, but don't want to bust the bank either.

Re: VQ Dago Red P51D Mustang...

I would imagine that the standard Hobbico or Great Planes mechanical retracts would be sufficient for this model:


My preference would be the Hobbico retracts, since they are a metal body, but I have never used the Great Planes units.

If you're looking for some, I'm positive I have a few spare sets at home.

Safety Precautions: Do not touch the rolling airscrew in order not to be hurt!

I'd like to offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals!

Like he said, any 40 size should be ok
