Electron Retracts has a new set of retracts designed for larger models up to 30kg. The main cage and parts are milled from solid 7075 T6 aviation grade aluminium making it robust and reliable under a variety of conditions and terrain. Each motor housing incorporates a custom precision milled Electron Retracts carbon steel gearbox that provides a powerful, reliable and compact power output to the retract.

Those look strong. I'd pay more for quality retracts like these. Do they have a range of sizes? Like maybe for the V1200?

Thanks for the release/review, Jason!

Electron Retracts can be purchased in the US through Electron Retracts USA; email us at [email protected] or visit our FB page, Electron Retracts USA. We also attend many of the Midwest/Southeast jet events, including Jets over Kentucky, Jets over the Heartland, First in Flight, Florida Jets, Super Jet South, Rosewood Fall Jet Classic, and others. At this time we do not have a US website (we're working on it with the main company in Spain), but we answer emails and messages as soon as possible. If you're looking for something in particular and don't see it (such as a combo for a particular aircraft) listed on the Electron Retracts Spain website, let us know and we can check to see if it will work for you.

Those look robust and sharp looking!

Any plans for less-conventional units, like say for a Wildcat or for amphibs like the PBY or CL-415?

Hi CF105, Electron Retracts really cater primarily to the Sport Jet flyer, but many prop planes or scale Jets can be adapted to use the Retract Mechanisms with scale struts. But...the retracts only go up and down, there is no articulating or rotating versions. We can however, vary the degree of motion, for example, the F86 or Mig15 that have a forward rake to the nose gear when extended.

Please email us at [email protected] for any questions you may have. We stock a lot of parts and accessories at our warehouse in Indiana, but complete combos and retract mechanisms are made to order at the factory in Spain and normally require only a 2 week lead time to have in the USA.

Thanks for the reply, Greg! I know some gear types are a “long shot”, but I like putting the idea out there

I did see on the website that you offer varying degrees of motion. That certainly covers many bases. Looks like your gear would be viable options for prop planes like Spitfires and FW-190s, for example. Will keep you in mind for future projects.

Cost varies not only because of the Euro conversion, but also is dependent on what you need or if it is a combo and has to be custom made by the main factory in Spain. Feel free to send Greg an email at [email protected] and he can easily give you a quote on what you are looking for.
