This is a photo of the retract units and struts I was thinking of using. I actually weighed the tank and strut assemblies and the weight came out to 158 grams. Not very heavy at all. I think I am going to use them. I have some thin carbon fiber (1.5 mm) sheet I will use to make the mounting plates. That should be strong enough. Unless I change my mind again. The retracts are for models up to 3.5 pounds. I think I can make that weight.
