I think this step is the hardest part of the entire series of building this RC Douglas DC-3. It took 2 weeks to research and trial and error making a working retractable landing gear. I'm very satisfied with result and kind of relieved because the hardest challenge already successfully passed. The rest will be easy, installing motor, complete the wing, adding servos, covering and decal.
