FLT Line 1600 gear
The gear is intended to be used in a 60” Corsair and had to be modified which was relatively easily accomplished. I would have preferred to have been able to purchase the same quality unit in the correct size but recognize my end use was not normal thus the modification.
I think these are very nice retracts, and in practice will fail before the mounting box and wing, which is my preference for sure. It's much easier to change a retract than repair a wing with chunks of foam broken apart. My complaint is that I recently had to buy the retracts plus landing gear struts, at about twice the price of the retract alone, since I wasn't about to wait for the retracts-only to get back into stock. Seems to me the gear strut is not likely to fail that easily. My struts were fine (after the landing stall which broke the retracts) and same with others who also stalled. The price of the retract itself is very good compared to similar sized FMS units (like for the P-47).
