Hi Carl and chilternflyer .
A good alternative to the robart retracts for the Eflite Deuces wild is Hobbyco Mechanical electrical retracts.
I have bought a set of 2 main gears and 1 nose gear, and they are all functioning quit OK.
Only a few modifications are needed to make mounting plates for the retracts.
To activate the 2 main gears I'm using a Hitec HS-75BB Retract servo, and the same and a standard servo for the nose wheel.
Beside that, I have made a plastic folio well cover, so that around 3/4 of the nose well, is covered.
I can't really follow the negative vibrations from chilternflyer. On the countary, I see E-flights Deuces Wild as one of best made ARF model- ever!
Batteries right behind the motors, perfect inlet and outlet for cooling. Solid construction just to mention a few advantages by this plane.
