Air ActuatorTotal Length Closed: 65mm
Total Length Open: 90mm
These little air powered ram''s are great for making special retract systems, bomb-bay doors, retracting glider power systems or even extra strong flaps!. In fact the possibilities are endless!
Hobby King is playing a dirty trick with me in putting a new air cylinder type that now has a hole for fixation !!!!
At the time I bought some air cylinders, there was no way to fix them and also most of them were leaking !
Should we trust that company anylonger ??
What is the quality of these new ones ? I won't buy ....Slo hecomprado uno y de momento no tiene perdida, le falta incorporar un agujero para poder instalar la parte fija.Use it on a pair of flaps. Light & easy to operate.Nicely priced, purchased 8 of the 25 mm units. Looked good visually but when tested in water, 3 of them leaked when the ram was extended. Devised a holder easily, cut about 18mm length of K&S tubing that will slip over the end, knotch a slot with a dog leg so the air nipple will slide through and get turned to lock in place. Solder a tab onto the brass sleeve.This actuator looks well finished, not tested yet for leakage. Something important : this actuator looks like a luggage with no handle to carry ! How do we attache it ????Very nice, well made rams which seem to be perfectly airtight on testing...
Downside? How do I mount them? Most other rams, including some Hobby City ones, have a mounting point so I can't understand why these don't. I'll have to come up with something...
