Parkzone FW190 retract options?
So I just got a sweet deal on a Parkzone Butcher Bird
It is in overall nice shape, all stock, missing bomb and black piece for bomb.
I got the plane in BNF with AR610 DSMX receiver, and 3 "Blue Lipo" 3s 25c 2650Mah batteries. It might have a bomb drop as there is something plugged into the "aux" port on the receiver.......will investigate later when I have time....
So besides the ridiculously overpriced e-flite retracts does anyone know of any other options?
I can't stand a cool model airplane with fake dangly gangly legs floppin round in the wind when I'm trying to do nice fly bys

I got a set in the classifieds on here for good deal. IMHO, the E-Flite ones are not over priced, they are 100% reliable and very sturdy, which is more than what can be said for many of the the others. I also like that the E-Flite ones give the correct stance to the plane. Where as 90 or 85* ones won't. YMMV.

I can vouch for the sturdiness of the EFlite retracts. I've never had them fold on me. I had one fail to extend one time, but flipping the switch again got it down and it locked fine.
They're one of the few EFlite items that I feel are actually worth the money.

Thanks guys but I have no fear of other brands/options.
I have a small World models Zero with mechanical retracts and I love them, they ALWAYS work.
I am simply not paying $50-70 for tiny electric retracts that cost maybe $10 to make that should have come with the plane in the 1st place imo
The markup on some of our hobby items is beyond ridiculous into the insulting category I'm always willing to pay a reasonable price especially for quality products but come on, 800% is a joke, these are not pharmaceuticals lol
Does anyone know if HobbyKing or anyone else's retracts fit this plane?
