FMS designed rotating retract set for the FMS 1700mm F4U Corsair - FMMRE005

This is a set of retracts (includes right and left) for the 1700mm Corsair. This set has complete metal trunnions, metal jack screw, metal stops on either side of the retract, and a thick and rugged plastic housing. These will not collapse. 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 so it physically cannot collapse during a hard landing. 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 10 pounds and OEM on FMS 1700mm Corsair sold during or after 5/2014

**IMPORTANT NOTE**: If you are replacing older PZ retracts with these retracts (planes sold before 5/2014), please note these retracts open and close at half the speed of the PZ retracts so they require this 6 second sequencer (click here)

Top Flite P-40E

These were a great fit into my top flite P-40E. I matched them with some oleo struts from another website. My P-40 weighs about 11-12 pounds and these are holding up so far.

Motion to the rescue

My FMS 1700mm Corsair did not even make it to the field and the left retract went south on me but a call to Motion and they were very quick to replace the defective retract and the maiden will follow shortly. So once again thanks Motion

best foamy rotating retract

Like all the foamy parts, you can buy, they do not tolerate even a bouncy landing so really be picky about your approach, the problem is that the 5mm pin used is just simply too soft, I have traded out the pin with a steel hardened dowel in the non rotating retracts with total success but these have a pin in the side making that difficult, the best part is that these are reasonable in price

Great product. No parts

No replacement parts available. Nor even can you purchase as single whole retract. I just broke an trunnion and there are nono to be found. Keep in mind if considering these retracts.

Great Retracts for other planes too!

I don’t own the 1700 mm Corsair, but did purchase these retracts for my VQ Models F6F Hellcat and they are perfect! They literally drop right in as if made for this bird. Added suitable suspension struts. These retracts are well constructed and work flawlessly. Highly recommend.

FMS rotating gear

It's ok however the lug that hooks onto the drive gear is brittle and weak. My landing strip has bumps in it and puts undercarriage to the test unfortunately. I usually almost stalk the plane to land it so my air speed is as slow as pissible
