Default e-flite electric retracts EFLG100


Has anyone tried these self-contained electric retracts from Horizon Hobby?


I realize they are a bit pricey, but when you figure in the cost of standard retracts, servos, servo rate reducer, ubec ľand all the hassles of getting the gear to open and close without binding and servo chatter they could be worth it. Plus every servo rate reducer that I've tried has not worked effectively for me.

I appreciate any input. Thanks!

They are great! Here is a link to my youtube channel with them installed on a parkzone corsair. There are a flying video of them too. Landings sucked, to steep of angle on the gear, easy fix with two plastic washers.
