Great. Your airspeed will appreciate it.

The weight will not rise from 30 pounds to higher with the entire landing gear retractable.
That includes the hydraulic pump.
Another 8 pounds of controls.
It's a matter of personal challenge and not performance
I hope to finish this year's end

Lots of cool looking modifications. It looks to me like you are making the landing gear retractable. Correct? Hopefully these mods do not weigh too much, otherwise performance will suffer. Good luck with the completion of your build!
