I'm looking for a electric tri-gear, all legs rotating for a approximate 6-7 pound plane. Think of a f-16 style layout.

Those are the new offering from Pingzheng, PZ-15096B. They are the same size as the PZ-V2/ PZ15096, but are all-metal (aluminum), and have a 10mm strut pin hole.

I've used the older plastic PZ 504s (here) in my Byron F16 and Falcon 120...the weak point was the trunnions and now they've switch to metal trunions

The newer ones look like they have FRP for the whole casing and metal bearings around the trunion pivots to protect the plastic...much tougher

The all metal ones I'm finding out can take more moderate landing abuse than stated...I'd rather the 23usd etract go before my wing mount on an aggressive touch down so I'm still going to use the plastic ones for now.

When someone possibly gets ahold of the new Robart 550 series electric retracts, please post pics. I have a 18lb A10 currently with EFlite 120 retracts but when you read the specs, they aren't rated for 18lbs.
My replacement plans are to use a 555rse nose unit with a 3/8 offset strut and the mains will need a little modification.
My idea is to use 95deg 562rs side plates to allow for a "belly" mount to the bottom of the wing. These side plates are used stock with nose gear units so the trunions will need to be replaced with 550 and use 7/16" straight struts. The bulkhead flange will be cut off since not needed.
I am currently emailing Robart to work up a package deal with the mods but no reply as of yet. Doug Scatterday and I had a lengthy phone conversation when I first inquired and exchanged ideas. He is the VP of Robart.
Thanks

Has any one tried these out yet in the Habu 2?

It looks as if they were made for that plane.

Looks like they should fit based on the dimensions.

Yup, just bought one from HK, going to install it onto my F-22. I took a short clip of it, testing the retracts and a little measurement.

I do not believe that the F-22 and Habu 2 are the same plane so my original question still stands.

Not without some serious changes internally.
Grab a servo reverser and have at it.
