I love the JUG but...the E-Flite retracts may or may not be "drop-ins". Mine needed several tweaks to the fore-aft position to nestle correctly in the wheel wells. This meant pulling the retract assembly, removing the strut, placing it in a vice and bending the strut to obtain correct clearance.
And...the "toe-in" on the gear is not locked in by the flats ground on the struts. My gear was grossly out of alignment and needed several tweaks to get her to roll straight.
The gear is reliable, sturdy and worth the price but expect to spend about an hour getting them set up correctly.
