  • Freewing electronic retract specifications

    MotionRC carries several different types of Freewing electronic retracts: Type A, B, B2, D, D2, C, E, G, F, M in various shaft diameters (3.1, 4.1, 5.1 mm). Are the specifications published anywhere? What do the ‘types’ stand for?

    Hello TPacini and welcome to the Squawk.

    As an absolute warbird fanatic and depend heavily on reliable etracts I had your same concerns.
    The specs are NOT published anywhere and a long while ago I asked one of the owners of MRC if they could be and he said they would see if that was possible.
    Its been more than a year and most like pushing 2 years since the question was asked so I gave up and seriously doubt that it will happen which leaves ALL of your questions to be unanswered.
    No blame on the Motion owner but more on Freewing. They (Freewing / FMS / etcetera) hold that stuff rather close to the vest as well as making sure there is minimal/no compatibility.

    Best regards,

      I understand Freewing not wanting to disclose certain information, but then what’s the point of MRC listing the retracts by ‘type’? Without context the alphabet soup is useless.

        You won't get an argument from me on that point
