Retracts are a very personal thing (IMHO) and I don’t REALLY have a problem with them…
In this circumstance – they add a lot of weight to a new airplane and it does concern me… That having been said the weight IS at or around the point of balance…
Transforming my Harvard into a ‘Yale’ is an interesting option… but … the retracts ARE installed so they will stay put … for the time being.
Just now I am looking for ways to install the ~2 pounds (~1 Kilo) of weight required to balance the plane. This design does NOT afford me the luxury of a long nose in which I can add the required ballast. So I must try to SQUEEZE the ballast into a tight area around the engine. (oh joy…)
Such are the trials of a committed modeller!
Life is either a daring adventure...
