The pattern guys are staying away from retracts these days. Carbon gear is lighter and more reliable.

You'll have fun with the Seabee, rednekk58. It's a great flying airframe and an unbelievable steal for the price!

Save the retracts for your Ultra Sport kit or Cloud Dancer .60. Spending $75 for mechanical retracts and a retract servo to put onto a $99 ARF just seems silly!
