Default Nnitro Bobcat with retracts?

Anyone put retracts in the Nitro Bobcat? If so, can you give me some pointers on what retracts and if the wxtra weight hurt the flying?

The Bobcat on the video has mechanical retracts but I don't know wich brand anyway it seems that the extra weight of the retracts doesn't hurt the flying . Now you have one doubt less ( I hope ).

I fly my bobcat 50 with numatic retracts. Mine is e-powered and is quite heavy if I remember correctly it was around 11 pounds flying weight. Still easy to fly and land at that weight.
