I am still waffling about retracts. I want to do them and am thinking about going with Robart 510 series pneumatic tri-gear.

Does anyone have a better "modern day" alternative for retracts, especially a lighter weight alternative?

Thanks in advance.
Just a suggestion, all of the new Foam EDF’s like the Avanti. All of these jets have really nice electric retracts, struts, wheels and brakes. You would have to measure to fit your needs. Freewing, E-Flite, and others.
