    Is there any landing gear out there that will get out of the view of the gopro on a HD 3D?

    I saw a post about lowering the gopro, but then it would hit the ground first.

    Spread em wide, make em long, get them out of view:)

    Thanks

    I use the taller version of the stock landing gear DJI released for the H3-3D and I film in Med instead of Wide and I rarely catch the landing gear in the shot.

    I did not see anything that stated that there was any that were longer, bigger or taller. Can you share a link please.
    Thanks.

    The ones I'm referring to are just a bit taller (4-6mm I think) due to a slight extension near the top. Come to think of it they might come stock on the P2V+ as well, I think I remember them first being spotted on one of the first released V+ examples.

    I got mine as a part of DJI's H3-3D retro-fit kit for the early P2's, they also come in the P1 version of the kit:

    Correct, DJI doesn't currently make any wider legs for the Phantom.

    Should be, yes, since the P2V uses the same shell and leg mounts as all P2's. I've used both types (shorter and taller) interchangeably on P1 and non-Vision P2 bodies.
