We worked with Don Smith and provide these gear for his kit. With the cost of props, I suggested Don offer dual air cylinders so the modeler has a backup means of lowering the landing gear in the event of an air leak.
We combined our giant landing gear mechanisms with stainless steel oleo struts to meet his specifications. Only bolts and nuts are used on scissor links and other components. These gear have two giant air cylinder.
Century Jet has expanded its options to include air and electric retract systems. Please select from the choices below to complete your retract system. Select the Deluxe 4 Way Valve for realistic air operations which provide the modeler infinite speed adjustments. All air standard and Deluxe 4 Way valves come with a life time warranty. If you elected to use electric retracts, you can upgrade to our Deluxe Controller which provides electronic door sequencer with selectable door open or door close modes when the gear are down plus 1 or 2 landing lights.
