Default Awful Horizon T-28 Carbon Z Retracts, A Fix?????

I have been flying a Carbon Z T-28 from Horizon Hobbies for months now. Love the airframe, lots of fun to fly. But the crappy retracts are souring the entire experience!

To get the mains to come up, you have to reduce throttle to idle so the helical prop flow does not cause one of the mains to hang up. Then sometimes the nose only goes halfway up. This past weekend, I cycled the gear while gliding at idle and that brought the nose all the way up, but one main stuck 20% out!!!

Has anyone found a fix for this? I am desperate. I will try anything: higher voltage (a separate BEC?), replace with some other electric gear or even pneumatic? Something else??? This gear ruins the wonderful plane. I want to fix this!!!!
