I noticed you can't crank up the I-16 landing gear until about 10 secounds after take off. I know it had a squat switch, but I doubt it had a time delay.

I think they were instructed to wait a while before cranking it up. It was a bear, and takeoff is not the time to fight bears.

I can't confirm this. I can retract the gear as soon as the wheels have left the ground.

Maybe there is some other problem on your side. Do you use a script or joystick software?

I have no trouble cranking up the landing gear just as the I-16 breaks ground.Remember it is manual control and you have to hit the up key 44 times to get the gear all the way up.(have to hit the down key 44 times also)

Same here. No trouble retracting gear right after t/o. It certainly did NOT have a squat switch.

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.
