I'm building my L-39 Topgun .

-The Top Gun retracts:
are out of stock .
- The FlyFly compatible retracts:
are out of stock.
- The HK Clone FlyFly retracts,
are out of stock.

Which l-39 compatible retracts may I buy?

Thank you for help.

Go for the Eflite 15-25 Tricycle set up. It will take a little trimming, but in the end,you WON'T regret it.

Eflite are great but the Hobbyking medium sized servoless retracts with metal trunions have served me well in many jets for a fraction of the cost. Pick some alloy legs from their site as well and you won't have to fiddle with the stock legs.
The ones used in my Hunter should work fine. Here is a link to my build with parts links.

I would skip using the supplied retract mounts and simply make your own from hardwood rails or plywood for better strength.

BTW I plan to change out my original air retracts to the ones mentioned as soon as we finish some other builds on the go. The plane deserves the upgrade.

Definitely build up your retract mounts, whichever brand you use. I've used the FlyFly's, H.K. retracts, and the RC Lander's, and have found the Eflite's seem to hold up to my "Not-so-textbook" arrivals, and when they didn't, the service on them was great(parts-wise).
