The little black ones?
A bit of warning, those are extremely fiddly to get set up.
There is no overtravel in the mechanism and servo endpoints must be exact. They also don't 'lock' in position and when retracted the weight of the landing gear is borne by the servo full time.
The blue ones have a positive lock and some overtravel in the actuator allowing some leeway in the servo position and linkage geometry.
They are a much better unit, if they will fit your application.
