Default 3/16 retract struts

I have been trying to find some 3/16" mechanical retract struts to install in a set of 40 sizes retracts. I have been unable to locate any and am hoping someone can tell me who carries them. I have tried Tower, Quantum and Horizon Hobbies but cant find them in their websites. Anybody know where i can get them. Thanks

How about bending your own? With a good wire bender (not too expensive) you can make them with coils, or not, depending on your application.

Check this link:

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGFW4&P=7

Info states it will bend wire from 1/8" to 1/4" (3mm-6.5mm) in diameter and will bend coils in wire 1/8" to 3/16" (3mm-4.5mm) in diameter. Should do exactly what you want.
