Do i need 2 more channels on my tx/rx to use these? or can they be connected together to work on the same channel? or what?
 ERIK 18 points

Can these be used instead of the e f l i t e eflg120 90 degrees rotating retracts
 Napstr 1185 points
They probably could although they only retract 90 degrees as well as turning 90 degrees.

Can someone pls help with evrything i need to get this assembled? (wheels...)
 Napstr 1185 points
Apparently hobbyking was going to stock axles which will attach to these but they haven't appeared yet - you could use a collet with a long screw as an axle for the wheel or do as I have done bend the last bit of the axle and extend it with some brass tube then use a pin through a hole in the end of the tube and washer to hold the wheel on - it would be easier if they made the leg longer but they aren't forthcoming with that option.

Can you help me? How to mount the wheels, what kind of "adapter" should be used? Can be found in this store? Thanks
 Lochan 5 points
There are several options you can use to mount a wheel. There are a few axles you can look for that will attach to it OR you can simply and carefully bend the end to 90 degrees and use a collar to keep the wheel in place. I usually just bend them carefully, put the wheel on followed by the collar.
 aldma 5 points
First of all thanks for your reply, but I need some more help. In this case I can not bend the leg because I need a 85mm leg and (if I have well understood) this is just 86mm, bending the leg I can lose 20-30mm having the plane to close to ground. So the only solution will be to find an axle. But frankly speaking I am not able to find it. Do you know if HK is selling any light and cheap axle good for this retract?

Wow...I searched for the bolt on axles here and looks like the only type HK carries are the ones that are used with the "strap" type landing gear. I searched Tower and Great Planes has what will fit these axles (approximately) - "Great Planes Wire Axle 1-1/4 x 1/8" " - stock number GPMQ4279. They're made for 1/8" gear wire, so are .007" larger than the 3mm ones here but should work. $4.79 for a pair. target=_blank>

will these work with f-18 edf? and if so what retract woyld I use for the nose wheel?
 Napstr 1185 points
They would work for any model less than 1kg weight that wants the wheels to flip 90 degrees when folding up. For the front HK now sell some of the 18.8g units which are steerable
