Retracts - Douglas DC-3
For realism that's sure to turn heads at the flying field, outfit your DC-3 with these custom-made Top Flite pneumatic retracts. They accurately replicate the "fold up" action of the full-size plane's gear, and provide close-to-scale looks without the extra expense of oleo struts.
Air cylinders and linkages for operation are included. Requires air control kit and pressure vessel.
This is a Pair of Scale Retracts for the Top Flite DC-3 Twin Engine Aircraft.They are designed to look and function much like their full scale counterparts on the real airplane. This retract unit has two front legs with scale-looking cross-braces, and hinged at the midpoint to allow the gear to fold up. The third leg is a Y-shaped part to stabilize and brace the gear in the extended position. Each leg has hinged mounting plates at the top and the retraction arm near the top of the left side main leg.
