Retracts/ Spring loaded fixed gear for Wattage S-3 Viking

Hey guys,
I recently put together a Wattage S-3 Viking foamie EDF. Looking for retracts that, if possible, will belly mount, and go out at a 45 from the fuse for the two mains. Is there such a thing? The stock fixed gear is utter garbage. Piano wire with little 1 1/4" wheels.
Wing Span : 38 inches(965mm)
Wing Area 230 Square inches
Length: 31 inches(787mm)
AUW 33-35 Ounces(935.55-992.25 grams)
Any suggestions/Ideas would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Kevin
P.S. If need be, I can do fixed gear but they probably need to be spring loaded.

Yep, it sure is. I work there part time and sometimes use the shop as a personal hangar. You know how it is, too many planes, need the space

Nice S-3. a buddy of mine did retracts on his years back, I'll try and get ahold of him and find out what he did. He's currently on vacation so don't expect lighting fast answers.

No worries, did you remember if they worked OK? I'm curious if those twist and turn retracts might work. I don't anything about them.
