  • Dynam messerschmitt

    Does anyone have the dynam ME 109? I'm looking to rake the gear forward. Has anyone done this, and if so, How?

    Chris, I've raked the gear forward on several warbirds, both Dynam and other brands (not a ME 109 however). I put thick plastic washers under the rear two mounting screws of the retract mounting plate. That will angle the strut forward and usually still allow it to retract in the stock wheel well. If you have to use several washers, you might need to use longer mounting screws for the rear.

    Good luck!

      Thanks man. I'll give that a try. I was concerned about if the gear would retract back into the stock wheel wells.

        I raked mine forward with washers and still retracts fine

            I tried that, But the Gear is set deep in the wing, so. I didn't dare. I just flew it as is. Man, What a docile bird.
