    Hello guys..

    Been doing TON of research on this - and looking for some landing gear ideas.

    I have the original Phantom, am looking for some cool black CF or similar material landing gear ideas, and where to get it. Originally I was looking for some folding gear, and found some from Shapeways, but didn't want to deal with the cost. So I am back to square one.

    Originally I was looking at this -

    But at 108g - isn't that pretty hefty for the Phantom?

    Also saw this which seemed nice -
    http://www.infinity-hobby.com/main/prod ... s_id=10243
    But that is 94g. Would I notice a difference between the 2 weights? Are either of them just too heavy for what they are???

    Just looking for thoughts, or other options.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!
