These nose landing gear are extremely fragile and break very easily. When they fail, the individual parts cannot be ordered separately, and you have buy the entire assembly for $54. This is my 5th one!
FMS should be ashamed!!
I know it's been a while since Horizon Hobby took over FMS, but they should both be ashamed at what they've done to their product line. Immediately, they raised the prices on every item, including this nose retract. It was already the weakest point of this wonderful bird, however, it wasn't as painful to replace at $19.99. Just a pure hassle every time it would break so easily. But when the so-called "Upgraded" retract was introduced and priced at almost 3 times the original price, they introduced price gouging into the R/C field. This product is no where near worth $55. Especially since it won't hold up an better than the last. Not every landing will be perfect! But have one touchy one with this one and it's another $55. FMS, you really should re-think what you've done to your pricing and your line-up! You've taken the fun of owning an FMS plane away from most of us.
FMS replacemet nose gear
On my first landing after replacing the nose landing gear, the nose gear collapsed again on landing breaking off both nose gear doors and the actuating lever inside the nose gear wheel well. I removed the damaged gear and took the servo/actuating mechanism apart and found the locking cam jammed in the mid position. I've repaired the mechanism and reinstalled the gear and haven't tried it yet.
Not very durable, especially on a grass strip !
Can buy this retract for 19.99 horizon hobby
the metals used in this retractable nose gear will not take any abuse and the servo part jams easily.
Works fine. But the product
Works fine. But the product is very cheap. I know it will happen again.
Speed for shipping is 5 stars quality of product is - 5 stars
FMS on other planes are great like the Super Scorpion. But the T-28 1400mm is the worst I have seen, especially the nose gear retracts. I have been flying about 40 years so I know to land on the mains. Now I only buy the servo retract and use the existing strut due to it's never bent or damaged. I can only guess how mainly you have replaced.
