    I've installed the "extended landing gear" that I bought on eBay. I'm not sure from which seller, though.

    I already had the camera off in order to add the Rotorpixel gimbal, so it was pretty straight-forward. My one concern at first was about mounting the compass, but as it turns out, I was able to pull about an extra inch of the cable out of the Phantom. So, the compass is mounted at the same angle and distance down as before.

    Sorry, I don't exactly understand your reply. I realize that's the same product as the one I posted, but I don't understand if you're saying it's cheaper and has cheaper quality, or cheaper and good quality.

    Anyway, thank you all for your replies, but I'm still looking for someone that has tried the kit that I originally posted. If anyone can give their experiences with it, that would be great.
