    I have removed the standard landing gear and added some 3d printed parts under the motors to attach carbon fiber tubes. The CF tubes were cut from an arrow. This makes for a wider stance for landing and the taller height also gives more ground clearance for the gimbal. The CF tubes will also be used to mount floats when flying over water. The tubes are easily removed for fitting in a case. Compass and antenna have been reattached to wooden dowels. The overall setup is lighter than the standard landing gear and provides more room underneath for video transmitter etc.
