I installed these retracts on a 2kg Bobcat last night. Flew it today twice, had the nose gear mount pop out on second landing. The nose retract has not worked since. Meanwhile, one of the main gear retracts is failing to retract completely. The problem here appears to be a cheap motor and worm gear setup. The machined metal housing, conversely appears to be of good quality. An interesting mix of cheap and quality components, with the cheap ones undermining the quality one. Cmon, Hobbyking, you can do better than this. Give us a retract that works well and lasts. You have other retract products that are really superb. Too bad this is not one of them.
Bottom line: barely used and not holding up.
