    There is also this video on youtube using the stock landing gear.

    Seems like a lot of work for a drone that doesn't have a 360 gimble, maybe you get less drag while flying that my increase your fly time.

    Ths will absolutely hose your range by orienting the LG paddle antennas in exactly the wrong direction when the gear is retracted. Ingenious but totally pointless mod.

    Pointless but looks cool.
