You probably have them set up wrong but those retracts are junk, I replaced mine with a set from http://www.franktiano.com

The proper way to setup a retract servo (i have the same one and its fine for that model) is to measure how far the push rod moves thats attached to the gear mechanisim and slides in and out to push or pull the retract.

Then take a blank servo wheel and drill 2 holes for the rods or keepers 180 degrees apart and the same distance between the holes that you got from measuring the throw of the control rod. That should give you lock to lock movement without binding.
