FMS Designed Servoless E-Retract - FMMRE003

Includes one FMS designed servoless electronic retract. Designed for use on the FMS 1400mm P-51B and P-51D warbirds.

NOTE: These retracts open and close at half the speed of the stock retracts so they require this 6 second sequencer (click here) when used on an FMS P-51.

Didn’t work

Ok so I bought a fmsP-51 mustang. Built it and everything worked except the retracts. Both where not running. So I order two more at 30$ a pop. They show up, I install them and guess what? One works, one doesn’t. So motion rc sent me a new one because motion is the best and the back their products. Anyways, they both work now. Freewings are much cheaper and seem to work much better.

great retract for 1400 fms

these are fantastic, slow, lots of torque, close tight, no play, so worth it, MUCH better than the stock retracts. You do need to remove a bit of foam to get it to fit though

Upgraded retracts

The retracts are a little longer than the original RE003's but after removing a small piece of foam from the model they fitted well, and worked normally. They appear to be designed to withstand some side thrust which the originals could not do.

Slightly larger

I bought this as a replacement for the FMS P-51B. The length of the housing is about 1/4” longer requiring the removal of some wing form that forms the socket for the retract. Otherwise the item which has be redesigned appears to function more smoothly. Would buy it again.

FMS electric retracts

The old retracts fail after just a couple of landings. Any form of side loading will cause the gear to collapse. It is fixable with a simple metal clip. The newer version does not have this problem but it still sometimes fail to extend/retract. The quality is a hit or miss. Just have a couple of spare ones in your shop.
