I have no issues with the retracting motor but the aluminum material is relatively soft. That means there is now some play (turn) on the wheel leg as connected to the steering arm, in less than 10 flights. Still steerable, we will see.On the maiden fight of my new P-40 50cc, It failed to come back down. I had to land it with No tail wheel. I should have not used a cheap Tailwheel Assembly on a $1800 plane. Thanks hk
I bought this to use on a Skyshark P-40 50cc plane. AndI would say it is the perfect size for this plane. I did have to use a servo reverse to have it work with the retracts. It comes with really nice tail wheel.
