Just found out about the gear retraction cycle. Front bit goes up and rear 2 wheels go half way up ...

Hi John,

not a pretty but a purposeful design but doesn't she look low to the ground? Does the landing gear retract?

Regards

Reggie

Very nice indeed John, I saw it was airborne this morning at Norwich 09:05, and it was up at Aberdeen at 16:00 on FR24.

Hi Reggie...I saw the machine mainly on the ground and seen it take off but didn't see any retraction. :???:
So I really can't say for certain about this. Lots of funny features such as an overgrown rear rotor, and mini strake /fairings from the body onto the boom?
Didn't really think much about its height off ground, but since you mention it :whistle: cheers..JB

Just seen your reply Rich, thanks for the kind comment. It was busy this morning and I bumped into your manager this morning while waiting at the wrong end of the runway
for the thing to return :lol: That's life in the fast lane ,thinking it wont use the ILS/27 end :unsure:
