Default Eflite 60-120 size electric retract question.

I am curious if any of you kit builders have had any experience with the 60-120 size eflite electric retract. I'm wondering how they are on bumpy grass runways? The field I fly at (especially right now is very dry) is half dirt half grass or sorta like grass probably more weed like. It's mowed and kept clean but can be bumpy.

I bought a set for a ultra sport and I am about to start construction of the wing. Wondering wich way to go. (Retract or fix) I have 60 size fixed gear now too.

But I have recently heard bad things about these retracts on non paved runways....

Thanks!!

The specs at Horizon Hobby say they have a 900 ma stall current. On a rough filed that could pull your battery down real quick.

I've used eflite on several planes including a US 60 on both paved and grass runways without any problems. You have to understand that the retracts are just part of the package that also includes good quality struts and quality tires.
