Hi, looking for a set of electric retracts for a 700 size A109. It's a Marvelcraft fuselage but the retracts it came with are the servo operated ones. These look like they would be a challenge to end up with a well functioning system. The electric ones look very promising and a lot simpler to install and setup.
Any help greatly appreciated!

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

I like the eflite electric retracts. Mine were easy to install and setup. On 600 size fuselages I installed the 15-25 size retracts

Roj, I believe he is looking for the worm gear type VS a standard servo with linkage. Yes technically still a servo but much less complicated.

Check here, perhaps you can make one of these work

Good evening guys,
yes, looking for self-powered retracts, no separate servo. The ones I've looked at all appear to have a very similar bolt-up to the ones that MC have provided. Seems a much nicer concept than servo actuated!
The Robart ones have a control module. I assume you can change the deflection rate and direction?
Do they all work off of your receiver battery or can you get them with a dedicated power supply/battery?
There's a few A109s on youtube with them but no information about supplier etc.

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

These retracts don’t require separate servos.

Well, take this into account...

Weight

A 700 class helicopter... Electric?

Servo and mechanism separate, the better.

I have them on my Roban 800 air-wolf and they work just fine They did come with the kit... no servos just a motor that turns a jack screw which retracts the L/G... You might check them out on Hobby king's site too... https://hobbyking.com/en_us/catalog...&___store=en_us

Thanks guys,
I bought the retracts and scale struts from HK. The struts are sprung with scissors on them. I'll have to modify them to fit but it should work nicely.

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!
