I think all retractables from piston to jet should have gear up warning systems from the factory (most modern jets starting with VLJs like the Phenom 100 and Citation Mustang do). It would not add that much more to the price. I know you can have a system installed aftermarket no matter what retractables you fly from piston to jet.

Boeing 787-9 went around at Melbourne after ATC noticed landing gear was not down

Landing gear? We don't need no stinking landing gear!

yes, all certificated retractable gear aircraft indeed have a warning horn if at least one gear is not down and locked and the power is reduced...

This plane actually does have an inertial separator. Maybe that contributed to the gear malfunction incident.
