Default GWS ME 262 retracts

I am about to start building the GWS ME 262 and want to fit retracts during the build.
can anyone recommend a good set of retracts to fit to this model.
I think the spring air 602 micro trike set will be to heavy for this?
I also have a set of micro retracts, I think they may be from GWS, tiny air cylinders, came in a plastic tube. But these are hopeless. The piston stroke is not enough to rotate the legs 90 degrees, only manage 50 degrees, even after tweaking them.
Any help appreciated.

I only saw a video on YouTube of a GWS 262 w/retracts. I don't think it mentioned what kind tho'. I keep throwing blades off the rotors on my 262.
