Default HABU32 E-flite retracts problem

Done about 10 flights on my Habu32. No significant problems until just before last one...

While preflighting, I tried the landing gear retraction/extension. Great came in, but then one of the gears had a life of itself and started an automatic cycle, out, back in, jet cycling. This without touching the gear retract on my remote.

Trying to simulate the failure, did quite a few normal cycles and then it did it again, but this time on a different gear. Nose gear instead of one of the mains.

Checked all connections. Did not find anything. After several tries it seem to work but not too sure.

Anybody an idea what is causing this? I have the Y harness from the gear connect to a Y with the CC BEC pro I'm using. Once again never had problems before with this...

I don't understand about connecting the gear Y harness to the BEC. Can you post a drawing?
