Default Sm large 1/6 f4 phantom

Looking for info on the landing gear. Iíve heard that the gear will not retract with air loads on it but have seen videos with all the gear up and doors closed. Large Phantom owners check in please

I'm using a JMP hi-flow valve and 2 extra large air tanks for volume. The gear and doors close good however, I continue straight during climb out and only turn out when the gear is up. On one flight, I turned out shortly after take off and the left gear did not go up completely.
