    put in the full URL minus the s and you should be good to go. Not sure i'd bother over the stock set. Now if they're retractable? Maybe. (I've found one video of retractable skids for a Phantom), but not sure i'd go for that particular set up.

    hope this helps

    Anyone know the weight of the stock skids to compare, these maybe better for anyone purchasing a gimble as I have one on order and from the videos on you tube whilst the copter is on the ground you cant point the camera down as it will touch the floor.

    Would the Carbon Fiber cause issues with the electronics in anyway, especially the compass since it is mounted to the skid?

    I have these skids... they are heavy, and they are impractical if you plan on using a gimbal.

    I used parts from this particular set to fabricate my retracts.

    To address the compass concerns- it will not affect the compass, and it does not affect the electronics- it does offer a very stable landing platform, but it is truly overkill in my opinion as it has so much extra material than needed- it is over-engineered.
