Good retracts for 70mm Phantom?


Well the other day I lost a landing gear mid flight and I had to make a 2 wheel landing. The 70mm phantom is so cool and it will ROG off grass nice so I think I want to get retracts for it. Can anyone recommend some for me?

Nobody? Would the retracts for the RClander 70mm's fit in the 70mm phantom?

Are they mech or air? How much does you bird weigh? The Rclander metal retracts are pretty study for a 4lb plane MAX. That is if your are using mechanicals. If you are using Air...then the HET mini's will work great for up to a 7lb bird. Hope this helps.

PS...Hobby lobby has good mechanicals as well. Look for the ones for the Executive Jet. They are really solid.
