There is one guy on the youtube that build retracts that fit in a water bottle cap... you know, the thin ones... I have to experiment with some gift cards and superglue and paperclips.

evilBay used to have listings for copies of the original GWS nano retracts... I searched using my purchase of them, no joy. I bought another set from a motor/ esc site. Will dig for the addy and post it.

They're about ⅔ of the way down the page. Great customer service, very helpful and fast responses.
