    Hello,any experts out there?
    I am having problems getting the leg to lock in the up position,it locks in the upright position,no problem.
    I obviously need it to lock in the up position when launching to avoid damaging the prop.
    It did lock initially.
    I suspect it is probably a common problem that people have dealt with,
    Anybody help me out?

    Normally the linkage just needs a little lube
