Hi a bit more done, cut out the doors for the retract, hinged them and fitted the torque rods to keep the doors closed, have been using torque rods for awhile 0.3mm, fit and forget, can be a bit of a pain getting the tension just right, so this time made up a couple of adjusters, when happy with the tension tighten up the cap screw, you can see them either side of the RX, made up the wiring harness for both wings, everything worked first time, made up and glassed in the frames for the retract, did think about moulding a mudguard for the wheel, in the end took the easy route and made up a cover for the retract unit, might stop some of the grass getting inside, time will tell
For battery power using 5500mah 3s lipo X 2, need the weight, but only using 1 at a time, fly for one day, then swap over to the 2nd battery for the 2nd day the Jeti bec gives me telemetry, input volt, output volt, capacity used, plus alarms can be set, all the servos are HV, at the moment set at 8 volt
