Delta Vortex Models with Retracts

Bruce's Comments:  Several builders have installed retracts in their DVs, most of them being air systems. There is lots of volume in the wing - it is 4" thick at the center.  I don't have many details from these builders, but the point is, it can be done...

Notice the clever T-handle for easy lifting. Looks like it threads in - removes for flight.
