E-flite 90 and 105 nose retract

Hi

I have an e-flite 25-46 nose retract with 90 degree retraction (EFLG30190). I have realized I need 105 degrees retraction. E-flite have this type retract, but a little bit too costy when I already have bought the 90 retract.

Is it possible to modify the retract I have, by i.e. changing the trunnion?

Thanks for all input

Check on the Do-335 thread, I saw something there.

If you look closely between the two units, it appears the carrier travels further in a longer notch in the side plates to give you a greater sweep angle. That means the control board would also be longer to have the switches further apart.

The trunnion should be identical between the two units, with the side plates and control board likely the main differences, (on my units there is more than enough length to the drive screw to cover that difference). That comprises a good percentage of the total retract mech, so it would seem wiser to simply sell the one you have and grab the correct unit for your app.
