Default Avanti gear in Viper

HI. I'm told that the Avanti S 80mm landing gear strut is short enough to fit in the Eflite Viper. But what about the retract servo, is that the same size as the Viper servo?

Why pay Brand name prices ? Most are actually produced by 3rd party and you usually can buy at better price via someone like Hobby King etc.

All you need to know is the retract unit itself dimensions and then sort out legs from many available ..

EDF's at the end of the day are too often marginal power setups. Adding bits and bob's to a model can basically tip them over the edge to then be hard to fly.
