Fixing the retracts was slightly difficult for me as I was handling mechanical retracts for the first time ever! I thought of servo-less retracts at first but mechanical retracts are lighter as I was trying to save as much weight as I possibly can. The nose gear have doors that open and close along with the wheel, all the mechanism is done under one servo, and of course it's steerable. As for the rear landing gears, it doesn't have any doors that cover the wheels after it is retracted.

The landing gears and wheel configuration was fully customized so that the scale replicates the real aircraft.
