The housing is made out of plastic that easily splits from landing impacts. Gear has no shock effect, no give. I am on my third set on my Super Corsair, high speed. One or both gear lock in either the up or down position. No higher quality upgrade available. I would gladly pay more for better product.

Replacement landing gear for my FMS 1400 P-40.
Unit works well and fit the aircraft as a bolt in replacement part. The only issue I had was the wing is glued on to my plane so I had to splice the wires near the landing gear. But it was a simple work around, All is functioning well.
Only issue with the new gear was the wheels. One was drilled off center and the hole was wobbly- so I used the wheels from the gear I was replacing- all is well.

I finally got to try my 1400mm P-40 (Not an FMS) with FMS retracts. When I got them they fit the airplane perfectly. There is a small pin the rides on a cam that turns the gear as it folds, at the field I found the pin will somehow get behind the cam allowing the gear to fold unintensionally. Consequently I wound up with a couple of prop blades sheered off and the gear pulled out of the wing. It should be an easy fix but a bit annoying.
