One of the three gear is very jerky. It works bit seems to be struggling. Not sure if it will last very long.

Xwave Retract Gear

I bought 3 Xwave retracts for the new Motion RC OV-10 airplane. When I got the plane built, I tested the retracts, and they were difficult to get to synchronize, that is, move all up together and all down together. Finally, one system failed completely. I sent it back to Motion RC, who replaced it quickly and free of charge. Thanks Martin! I installed the new retracts, and again tested the retracts. I had a similar issue of the gear not staying synchronized. After some thought,I added a separate 6.0 volt receiver battery pack, which appears to have fixed the problem. The gear system is stout and the up locks and down locks are all metal and are strong. These appear to be very good gear but do need extra voltage when cycling. The BEC from my 4 cell power batteries didn’t handle the load.

Xwave RM400-90 Electronic Retract

I installed the FMS 1700mm P51 retracts in an equivalent size balsa P51. If the plane was anything faster than takeoff or landing speed, the retracts would not operate. Sometimes not even if the speed was low. I changed to the Xwave retracts. These retracts ALWAYS work no matter the speed. A little more expensive but it saves airplanes.

OV 10 Bronco retracts landing gear

I just finished testing the new retract system from Motion RC. The finish and build looks great, very well put together, the respond time is good, the structure looks very strong. I like the way how quite are in comparation with others electric retracts systems. My general opinion is I like them so far, now let see how they do out side in the real world.
