Default T 28 with retracts

I have looked at You tube videos showing PZ T-28 with retracts.

I have been kicking this idea around for some time. Just got another T-28 and figured that I would modify this one with retracts.

I was looking at the wing area where the retracts would be mounted and it dosent look that thick. I would have to select a retact that would not exceed the thickness of the wing.

I was looking at the GWS micro mechanical retracts. They appear thin enough to be mounted in this area without taking too much material out of the wing.

Has anyone used these retracts?

Has anyone used a different type of retract?

Any help before I start cutting would be great.

Larry

I also have beeen researching retracts for my T-28. I found this informative thread on RC Groups : http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1189917 . If that one doesn't help then do a search on google for "parkzone t28 retracts" and the first few links that appear are pretty helpful.

I saw those, but at over $100 a pop, I'll try the $20.00 retracts first[:-]

Thanks for the link.
