Flyzone focke-wulf FW190 Retracts

I, like many have broken the retracts and need to replace them. Does anybody know where I can get information on how to swap them out? Thanks so much

Retract issues

Join the club it grows daily!

Orion Pax has fore sale the metal parts that replace the crappy plastic ones that come with the FW. Mine broke sitting on the floor just from the weight of the finished aircraft. Hobbu Lobby sent me the replacement gear no problem but I waited for the metal parts ($5.00) US. Before I repaired them. You do NOT want to attempt to remove the stock gear! The installation is very ROBUST! You will damage the wing badly from what I have seen from the whole set of replacement retracts that HL sent me.

There is a great thread already that shows you the problems and viedo on how to do it. Go back a couple of pages you will find it.

Found it. But the landing gear on the FMS one is good enough to use, FINALLY! It's not gonna slow down well though.
