E-flite Electric Retracts

These would be nice, for Airwolf and Agusta.

Great idea, but pricey considering the plastic housings and small size.

I wonder if they can accept different struts, and what size? Those style wire struts with clamp on axles are crap....

Amen to pricey. $120.00USD is asking a lot for what you get. Might be a challenge to mount the mains in the space available on a Bell Triple Deuce or
AirWoof. Based on the advertised weight capacity (2-4 lbs), you would have to stay in the 500 size fuselage/mechanics to use them.

They don't give any dimensions for these 10-15 size retracts.
I have the 10 size Great Planes mechanical retracts in my 450 size Agusta.

@ Rodan - The struts are sold separately, so I assume that means that you can change them.
And, they are planning to release larger size, for larger aircraft.

@ Boyd - Don't know what I was thinking, you're right, the airwoof is a different retract configuration.

These look great! This price is cheaper and these seem smaller than other electric retracts I've seen.
