FMS designed rotating retract set for the FMS 1400mm F4U Corsair V3 - FMMRE004

This new set of retracts (includes right and left) for the 1400mm Corsair is a HUGE improvement over the old version of the retract. This set has complete metal trunnions, metal jack screw, metal stops on either side of the retract, and a thick and rugged plastic housing. The micro switch is under the jack screw and trunnion as opposed to the old design where a hard landing could break the micro switch. This design includes channels to stop the trunnion from moving even during a hard landing. We find these retracts to be a HUGE improvement over the old retracts. These retracts also operate at 1/2 the speed of the prior version so they open and close at a much more scale speed (about 6 seconds to open, 6 seconds to close). This is a perfect rotating retract for planes up to 8 pounds and OEM on FMS 1400mm Corsair sold after 3/2014.

Other Specifications:

**IMPORTANT NOTE**: If you are replacing older PZ retracts with these retracts (planes sold before 3/2014), please note these retracts open and close at half the speed of the PZ retracts so they require this 6 second sequencer (click here). Also, the old landing gear struts will not fit this new E-Retract set. The new landing gear struts must be ordered.

1400 MM Corsair Retracts

I had an issue with the pin on one retract poppping out very early in my ownership of the 1400mm Corsair. Motion quickly replaced the unit with a new one no questions asked. When I received it, I found it to be rotating the wheel 'up' and now 'down' in to the well. I described the issue with pictures and Motion again sent me a replacement quickly. I noticed a slip in the package stated "Tested" which I beleive was from FMS directly. I plan to install today but want to thank Motion for the outstanding customer service. I really have never seen anything like this before but BUSA comes to mind with an issue I had some time ago and I've since bought several kits. It's nice to see companies figuring out how to treat customers. It's the best way to keep them loyal and making further purchases.


Gear that work with other aircraft

These also work as advertised with the HH Red Bull F4U. I wish the original equipped stood up better to the hard landings :) LOL. Hopefully these help me land better.

Love dealing with MRC. Great products at a reasonable price plus great customer service. Bought a set of FMS retracts that were faulty (reason for 4 stars) and without hesitation, they sent me new ones for nothing. Additionally, MRC carries parts for most of the planes they sell and some that are discontinued. Great to deal with a veteran owned company that knows how to treat its customers. A true 5-star company in my opinion.
