If its any help to you, my friend has the RTF version with the retracts. Retracts work well and have held up well on our grass strip, but he did have a bit of an issue with the model pitching down when the throttle was opened, preventing a rise off ground. He solved this by glueing a ring from a drinks can in the rear of the fuselage pod, angled upwards to reduce the downthrust from the fan. The model is also C of G sensitive, so he advises not to go rearward of the recommended position.
