Scale Retracts and Landing Gear

Century Jet design and manufacture more than 500 unique scale RC landing gear, and we can also assist you in making a customized set of retracts.

Our landing gear are made using a variety of material: 6061 T-6 Aluminum, aircraft grade stainless steel tubing, stainless steel side plates, and investment cast 17-4 stainless steel parts. CNC and machined aluminum parts also complement our wide range of 1/10 to ¼ scale aircraft landing gear. Sub-assemblies are attached using TIG welding, high temp silver solder, and/or high strength locktite.

We use only the highest grade stainless bolts and nuts where required. Internal brass bushing provide smooth oleo operation. We use a range of stainless steel tubing from ¼” to 1 ¼” diameter 6845D aircraft stainless tubing with a .035 to .055 wall thickness.

Strut lengths are cut to the specification of the manufacturer. The manufacturing of custom and drone landing gear are designed using our AutoCAD or BobCAM computer program and provided to our vendor for approval. We then transfer this design to either our certified machinist or transferred the data to our CNC machines to make precision parts.

Landing gear operation uses air, electric, or linear actuators based on the customer needs.
