Default Robostruts question (no retracts)

Hey Gang

I have been looking at Robo Struts. I am going to start a long term build that there is no correct scale retracts made for, but there are struts that will pass. So I plan to try struts with no retracts. I have never used struts and I am curious if you need the horizontal coil at the top of your landing gear that is in wire front landing gear or do you just mount them to a straight wire in the wing. And also will this work.


I am getting too many rc projects going lol.

Straight wire. The strut will take the shock of landing and take off in place of the coil. Robart will make custom retracts as well as most of the others like sierra, century jet, shindin, etc. but the price will give you a heart attack. Whacha building?
