    I once had an RC helicopter that I would tip over constantly until I put a "training kit" on the landing gear. It consisted of two wooden rods about 24" and 4 Ping-Pong balls. I zip-tied them in an X -pattern to the skids which gave it a much wider stance. Never tipped it after that. I was thinking that the it would probably work for the Phantom, although you might have to make the rods shorter to not be in view of the camera. I see now that you can get kits for the same thing here.

    Anybody ever done this to a Phantom?

    It's not a tipover problem that we are referring to but instead keeping the gimbal/camera off the ground with either longer landing gear or snap on extensions.
