      I retired three years ago from North Island NAS with 35years DOD and military time combined. I’m in Chula Vista.

          • So talked to MotionRC today and went through all kinds of testing trying this and trying that. Finally out come was when door closes on gear an when gear is retracted door opens back out off gear and gear comes up and door closes back with no problem and nothing damaged. Other than that they couldn’t figure it out either. They did make note on my account for warranty in case I have problems down the road.

            • Because the spring is coming i had some checks on my F22. I saw that when the gear is up and move the stick for the rudder the wheel inside is moving a little? Could be that a problem? Yours are the same?

                No my wheel doesn’t move it work like it’s supposed to. My only problem is with the door closing on the gear.

                  • I lost count how many times I had to modify/strengthen my nose gear. It's the only pet peeve I ever had with this model...Otherwise it's a jewel.

                    • Ray, I solved the problem in post 3405 above (and that was after already having fixed it once before using Hysol, and it still broke loose).

                        • Yes, it works a treat on the F-14, and I'm sure it will on the Raptor too. Haven't flown it again since adding.

                          • I would be happy to add the .STL file to the Support tab on the F-22 product pages? Just let me know (I don't recall who has the file)?

                                  Sounds like I am not the only one... I will have to figure out what will work for me... simple is always best for me!

                                    My nose gear has been solid, but I did install a 3D printed brace early on.

                                    My only gripe with the model is the main gear connecting pins. Either on grass or any bumps in the runway, they break very easily and my wings have paid the price.

                                    Understand why we have the suspension setup that is there now, but would trade it for a decent set of trailing links.
