I'm with you, I like the solid, firm movement of air systems. I like the fact that if I have brakes and have air already, air retracts are the logical choice. I like the fact the gear can be beefy yet still snap up with authority, nothing prettier than a jet just clearing the ground and the gear goes up evenly and quickly (no slap though, you have to use restrictore to avoid that!). Electric is slow, sounds like a toy and most of the time looks spindly, no thanks, air for me!
