So I think somethings wrong with your retracts or set-up.

Retracts do not require big power in fact due to the threaded rod system ... even if they jam - the retracts board should shut off power after a couple of seconds to protect the motor etc. But one item that I have never figured out why retracts do not sort ... its possible to insert leg TOO FAR into trunnion and jam it .. but even so - the auto shut off should work.

I have a feeling that you may have a fault where too high a voltage was passed to the retract when first tested ?

Does your servo tester work OK with servos ??
Yes, it works fine with regular servos. I think i might have connected the retracts wrong first
time around. Horizontal instead of vertical at the connect pins on the tester. Hope they will
work once in the Viper.
