Default Hurricane Retract systems

Guys,
Help Me.......

Guys i have got a 50cc (16lb i think) 30kg Hurricane. At present it has an air retract system it in. I bought it a few weeks ago. It has Home Made air retracts in it and dont work. They stick and they jam and i have had to belly it 2ce already after trying to adjust them... no good.

I have taken the system out and now looking at these new electric systems designed by companies like Lado Tech.

Guys need some help though. Due to its size and the fact that when she was built she Wasnt on a diet, she is a little on the heavy side. Flies great but i can imagine the pressure on the wheels when she is landing and stationary.

Does anyone have any sort of information regarding different systems. I have turned aginst air retracts and now looking at these electric ones. Less weight, Less luggage and guarenteed to work by the look of them.

Any Suggestions, comments or advice on this. I want to keep it scale but have some reliability in the undercarriage.

If it is really 16lbs then that's 7.3kg. If it is really 30kg, then that would be 66lbs.

yeah i can confirm the the eight is correct at 13kg and a wingspan of 93" and has a DLE55 cc powering it. It flies lazy which i like because it looks more scale.... Just the retracts ive got to work on...
