Includes one FMS designed servoless electronic retract. Designed for use on the FMS 1400mm P-51B and P-51D warbirds.

  1. breaks like glass 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2015

    These retracts must be made of glass the way they shatter on anything other then a perfect landing. Because they are designed to be slow operating, it is not possible to replace them with more sturdy gear.


  2. These people care. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2015

    I had a defective landing gear for the P-51 1400 mm. A new one was shipped the same day and arrived 3 days later. It doesn't get any better than this.


  3. WARNING 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2015

    DO NOT waste your money on these retracts. Although I wrote a review just 10 days ago, I placed another set in my FMS 1400mm P-51. This time I didn't even take off. With one medium speed turn the mains collapsed. Out of 6 sets of retracts purchase none have held up. The side rails are too thin and brittle. At $30.00 a pop they are ripping people off.


  4. Poor Plastic parts. 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2015

    On the second landing the plane was turned a little bit too soon thus causing a load onto the gear. Hence if the plastic rails were made of either heaver plastic or metal it would have withstood the side load. But, it didn't. The manufacture needs to make an improvement in the side rails. Especially when you consider the cost of these against others at an equal pricing, I would expect a better product.


  5. FMS Upgraded P 51 Retracts 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2015

    Although the product is great I down graded them because they didn't come with the pins. Customer services didn't tell me when ordering. Later I was informed I'd need to make my own.


  6. Great Gear for Mustang 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2015

    One of my retracts had a micro switch problem and MRC
    jumped all over the issue with a replacement shipped the same day.
    New one works great, back in the air before I knew it.
    Motion RC is the best.


  7. work well but somewhat weak plastic mounting rails 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2015

    The retract gear has worked very well but one hard landing broke the plastic mounting angle rails. But, perhaps it saved the wing by not tearing out the gear. However, the replacement new gear was easy to replace.

    Service from Motion RC is best out there!


  8. Easy to replace! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2015

    I was able to replace in less then 30 min.


  9. Well functioning but.... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2015

    all it takes is a hard landing and they start cracking. If they made these stronger would the wings or spars start cracking or bending? Maybe its a good thing they give first but @ $20+ a pop better brush up on smooth landings!


  10. Plastic screw plate is too fragile for the size and weight of the plane. 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2015

    The electronics work fine, however unless you have a perfectly smooth landing every time, the plastic screw plate will fracture and the retracts will loosen up. If it goes unnoticed your gear will collapse resulting in damage to your aircraft. To eliminate this problem, I wrapped/epoxied the retract plastic housing with very thin sheet metal and problem solved - After numerous landings the retracts are now solid.


  11. IMPRESSIVE! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2015

    I have the V7 P51, These are by far a better quality than my stock ones. A little foam carving was required but the fit, and action is outstanding. When I held them side by side with the old ones, BEEFY! Expect a longer life span for sure.


  12. Retract 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2015

    works good , the first time do not down the gear, follows work better...


  13. Retracts 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2015

    These are direct replacements for the P-51 V8 and of course on my first flight I made a hard landing and one of the retract mounts failed. So I ordered one, replaced it (easy) and flew yesterday. The one I didn't replace failed on a not so hard landing. Maybe I should buy two at a time? Never had a retractable gear plane before. Anyways the newer one did just fine. The only thing I wish is that I had some colored tape to cover the wire channel to keep the invasion stripes intact. The collapse yesterday ripped the tape in half. :(


  14. Very nice slow operating retract. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2014

    Replaced the retracts on a Airfield P-51 which were junk they just snapped up and down, Very easy mod with little trimming of the wheel openings. I bought the struts along with the retracts and I am very well pleased with these products. Waiting on spring as I live in Ohio to try the gear on our club grass field.


  15. Strong as an ox. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2014

    I put these in a V7, P51D, a little foam trimming fit like a glove. They take the abuse I give them on my rough landings!
