Replacements

Had a bad landing and broke one of the retracks. These replacement seem to be a little stronger. I like the fact that Motion carries spares for the planes they sell, not all stores do. Great company.

FMS P-40B Warhawk 1400mm Retract Set

I bought these to replace 1 bad retract. But you cannot buy just 1 retract. You must buy a pair. And the other unit cannot be used as a spare since the trunnion in each one is unique to that side. It is only a spare if you break the same side as the spare. I contacted both FMS and SmallPartsCNC to find a replacement trunnion, but FMS will not sell just the trunnion OR only 1 retract, and SPC does not sell the rotating type trunnion. As far as installation, the wire for the retracts give you either 1 inch or 1/2 of spare wire to fit into the multiconnector. OTH the flap wire have an extra foot of wire hanging out to connect to the multiconnector. Just an extra inch of wire would make installation much easier. The new set received is different than the original retracts. This one appears better made. The slot for the trunnion is straight and not curved as the old version is. The new unit's control board is hidden inside the housing instead being exposed on the bottom of the unit. The hole for the trunnion and the trunnion itself are different and not interchangeable with the old trunnion. One has a bushing and one doesn't. The trunnion pivot shaft is a different size as well to accommodate a bushing. Once installed, the unit performs well. But for the money, Freewing retracts, also sold here at MRC, far exceed FMS in unit or parts availability and durability, AND at a lower cost.

Great Retracts

Purchased these retracts to replace a set of troublesome retracts from another manufacturer on a larger warbird. They have worked flawlessly so far and have actually improved the ground handling of the plane.

Best customer service

Unfortunately I had a retract failure in my FMS P40B, one side collapsed on the 2nd landing the plane had. I still don't know what caused the problem, I took it apart and sent a picture, when I discussed it with Mat from Motion RC he was very receptive too helping me out. A few days later I received a new retract and installed it in my plane , six flights later all is well. they operate perfectly. Motion RC sets itself apart from the rest of the hobby with their products and customer service. I am and always will be a loyal customer.

Good Replacements

The first set failed (one) for some reason and started smoking. Motion replaced without some drawn out procedure for documenting that the item is defective. This is what makes them above the rest in the market. Their customer support is beyond reproach. Thanks guys. I plane is ready to fly now.
