Hi Guys

I've installed the airbrake as per the instuctions but it only opens about 10mm. I would have expected it to move almost vertically when it is fully open. Interested to hear if you have the same amount of movement in case I've installed it incorrectly (although I can't see it could go in any other way).

Thanks!

Paul

Hi Paul,
I guess you are talking about Stage 27/28 of Pack 6?
If you watch the attached video, you will see that you have installed the airbrake correctly. Mine moves about the same, so at this stage i would say it is correct. I guesss it's just one of the limitations at this scale.

Hope that allays your fears BigGrin

Thanks CaptnBirdseye - that's exactly what I was talking about and I have about the same amount of movement you appear to have in the video so yes you have allayed my fears! :-)
