I've created a model of an f22 and am at the stage where I need to set up the rig on the landing gear. Each wheel folds into the wheel well and is covered by two flaps. I need to set up an expression or rig that will swing down the landing gear only after the flaps have opened about 60% of the way. After the flaps are open 100% the wheels need to keep dropping into place and it needs to happen on all threee wheels simultaneously. Anyone have recomendations on how I should set this up?

Thanks.

no need for scripting. just use driven keys (http://download.autodesk.com/us/maya/2010help/index.html?url=Keyframe_Animation_Driven_keys.htm,topicNumber=d0e269345) ...

Should have thought of that. Don't animate much. Thanks.
