Landing gear cycling

When cycling my landing gear with the plane on its cradle the gear comes up sequentially. The nose gear comes up first followed by the port main gear , then the starboard gear. The entire retraction is timely but during this sequencing the starboard main gear pauses slightly in mid retract before retracting completely. Is this normal ? There appears to be no air in the lines or cylinders.

Thanks, TT

Sounds normal to me as both my Seawind MLG function similarly. JR

Ditto. Mine to. N20w operates the same way
