Is there any type of retractable landing gear available for the FC40?
Havent seen any but there is for the S800 :lol:
Thanks, I will look into that
I happened to view a youtube video about this item, but did not see a price until now. Seems a little steep to me $40-50. Here is a link to the item:

Those are manual- they are not switched, and I am assuming the thread author was curious about electric retracts.
I noticed this because I am currently in the process of attempting to mod a set for my v1.1.1
I found a set of small servoless retracts, that stop at 90 degrees, and have a 3mm shaft with set screw. I plan on finding a sweet spot on the side- where gimbal mount will not interfere, and then making a set of carbon fiber legs and skids. The retracts are 18grams each- and that is only a gram or 2 more than the shapeways parts list before the legs are added. I know these small retracts can support up to 2.5 kilograms- so they should be strong enough.
How smexy would a 3 axis with retracts be on a Phantom?
