I was able to use HK's retracts number OR011-01805. It takes a bit of grinding/cutting of the mounting flanges, the removal of foam in the way in the sponsons and trimming down the plywood in the sponsons in them just a bit. I also drilled them out to use 1/8" wire. It wasn't too hard and could be done with a drill and file if you wanted.
* NDizzle, I have a HK450ProTT, what mod is needed to do to fit this fuselage?. and when they say retract ready it means all I need to add is one servo o do I have to buy a retract system separately? Thanks!
It states so, but reality is that you need to get full retract system because there are no system included on this fuselage. Just got mine and found out that "2x9g servos" isn't the truth. Little bit disappointed because I would ordered full set of retracts if I have known that there is need for one. It'll take another 2-3 weeks to get one... Not good.
Good quality at first sight, just arried to me. Only 4 stars because: "retract ready, need 2 servos" is more than inaccurate, this fuselage needs full retract system not just 2 servos. There is no more than wheels and some metal rods. So I need to spend more than value of the fuselage to get retracts to this.
Please CORRECT the product info. Current "you also need" list is INACCURATE and confusing. Please state that there is NEED for retracts and offer one RIGHT size retracts on product info page.
Paintjob seems to be ok for a quick look. Actually doesn't matter in my case, going to respray to other scheme.

As mentioned the description is very misleading, the hardware to complete the body as a A-109 is NOT included. I have built mine with the fixed undercarriage, it sort of makes the whole point of getting a A-109 pointless. I would have gave it five out of five otherwise, very nice quality molding and paint. Come on Hobbyking, how much would it have taken to include all the hardware ????
