Although all noselifts perform the same basic function, there are significant differences between electric noselifts.   The most important difference is our unit has been specifically designed for installation in a canard aircraft.  All other manufactures of noselifts take a non-aviation product, highly modified it, resulting in a unit which has been adapted for use in a aircraft.

All other canard noselifts utilize a standard off the shelf Thompson Saginaw Industries ball screw linear actuator (performance pack series).  Parts are subsequently welded and/or attached to the standard unit to adapt it for installation in an aircraft. This method of adaptation results in a retraction system which is longer, heavier and requires significant modifications of the aircraft structure in order to facilitate installation.

The Custom Product Design's retraction unit is exactly what our name implies. All electrical components and circuits boards are selected and designed by an electrical engineer. The retraction unit is custom designed by a mechanical engineer, computer modeled, materials selected for aircraft application and all component parts are custom machined specifically for installation in a canard aircraft.

From ease of installation and removal, lightweight materials, long life and corrosion resistance this is the finest canard nose gear retraction system available for your plane.
