Weighed my engine, ECU, tank, etc. last night and it comes in at 17.5oz , and my retracts arrived. I should have the fuselage framed up this week. The retracts are actually kind of nice, I had some concerns with them coming from China and the description being somewhat lacking. However they are built with decent materials and have good geometry, the weight penalty is fairly minimal and it will be a cool feature. They are about an inch taller than the stock design but not enough to worry about modifying them, and keeping the turbine that much higher to prevent FOD is not a bad thing.
