Default Retract Users rolecall

A guy and I were talking the other day and I was asked how many Cozys or Longeze's were flying with retractable gear and I didn't know. I guess Velos and Eracers would fit in there too.
So can there be a show of hands or ACTUAL NAMES of retract fliers or people that HAVE THEM installed in an actual airframe-not 'wanna-haves' or 'gonna-build's'.
He wants to call some of these committed retract folks.

thamks mu.

Waiter- he has seen your website and it's what started this. Good stuff.
Tmann, You got some pictures of your installation?

Was there a couple of versions, updated, of the Infinity gear? or a reversion or something? The Velo gear will be discussed at Osh in Chris E's presentation I think.

Hey.....as long as we are on the subject of Infinity Retracts...... I'm wanting to add 2 hydraulic actuators to my landing brake and nose gear which I will be running off of my pump for my Infinity Aerospace R/G. I found where a guy in Canada did this but I have not been able to contact him as to the source he used for these add-on actuators.

Anybody know of a good source?

That is correct! I know of another builder who used servo valves to use the same pump for his landing brake and nose gear. I'm hoping to do the same. I'm currently on chapter six. Part of what I'll be doing at this point is channeling the fuse floor and sides for my hydraulic lines (fuse bottom), electrical conduit and rudder cable conduit (fuse side.) By deciding on my R/G this early in the build, I can plan out these options rather than retrofit.
