 Moving the nosewheel retract up and down in a scale manner required a different approach from the normal air cylinder actuation. I know it looks similar to a "clockworks" movement, but this works and heaves the retract in a fluid motion into locked positions. My goal is to delete all airlines inside the rigging so as to clean up the clutter in the interior. A large sail winch servo is connected to a large toothed gear/axle. Later I'll show how the main gear retract is moved using Firigelli actuators. Again, no airlines involved.
