  • Air retracts set up

    For those of you that are using air retracts on the larger aircraft. I have an easy way to cycle each gear when setting up the retracts without having to connect to the onboard air supply. Connect a short length of air tubing to the plastic air spout that comes with a can of computer duster, then connect to the gear cylinder. There is enough pressure in the can to cycle the largest gear made. Some times you don't even have to attach the piece air tubing if you have the quick connect connectors. The air spout will go directly into the end of the connector.

    Thanks
