Hangar 9 T-34 Mentor ARF - Question about retracts???

Hi, I just got my hangar 9 T-34 Mentor ARF.

My question to you pro's in this forum is: What retract's and servo should I use and do you recommend retracts at all? I understand that the Han 157 is recommended. has anyone used it and I also hear that a 180degree servo is necessary. I hear that they give trouble and I should stay with the fixed gear, but I really like the idea of seeing the wheels go up!

I have the mentor with the han retracts and I have never had a problem with em once I got the tension set. You have to use 2 servos though. The ones I used are just the hitec ones. I dont remember the number now and Im to lazy to go down stairs and look.

Thanks alot man, I just got the Hitec retracts servos, a low profile servo with 180 degree throw for the wheels in the wing and a standard retracts servo for the nose gear. I bought the Han157 mech. retracts kit. I have not installed it as yet but I will soon. Thanks for the advice.
