Question Retracts for Topflite Beechcraft Bonanza

Well it has been some time since anyone has posted a question about the venerable Topflite Beechcraft Bonanza, so here I go.

Just picked up a NIB kit on Ebay, paid way too much for it, however, I have been wanting one for several years. It should arrive within a couple of weeks.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what size retracts are recommended for this beauty. I am going to do an electric conversion, for the powerplant, but I could go either, air or electric on the retracts.
I am open to discussion as this is going to be a long build project.

I have been out of Powered Fixed wings for a while, mainly glass and foam sailplanes, a Habu 32 EDF, and lately, multi-rotors. I have been jonesin' to do a traditional build, for some time. I have been in this hobby for well over four decades, I can't wait to open this baby up and fondle some balsa wood and ply.

Hopefully "Remote ID" does not roll out as proposed, or by the time I complete this build, we will all be looking for a new hobby.

Peace, Wolf
