    Hi

    Do any of you have a pair of retract landing legs like the ones from RC Depot?

    it will be really expensive for me to buy them from USA and import them to Denmark.

    Wow, those look super nice. First time I've seen any like that. In case you are interested, here are a few sets that are way less expensive (and probably not as well built):
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/171360464917?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT $90 US Dollars and free shipping
    and http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJI-Phantom-lan ... 1555068055? $45.46 US with free shipping

    I was thinking of picking up a set of these, but my Phantom is already too heavy, and these weigh over 250 grams.
    While I was looking at eBay just now I found another set here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJI-Phantom-2-V ... 7663&rt=nc $51 shipped to the US.
    The seller claims they only weigh 120 grams, which are probably the lightest ones I've seen so far. . .

    I know it's not quite what you were looking for, but there is no way in hell I'd pay $250 plus shipping for retracts that I'd likely loose during my next landing related incident ;)

    unfortunately the ebay kits can't be used off the standard controller or receiver, which is why the other kit is $250

    Yeah, that fact is inconsequential to me as I use a FrSky Taranis transmitter and receiver to control my Phantom. I've still got lots of unused receiver channels to do things like retracts, lights and other things. . .

    I have some of the RC depot retracts in stock: www.savemyphantom.com/retracts

    They truly are amazing and work like a dream. They only take 45 minutes to install and no soldering. It's all plug and play. PM me or post any questions you have.

    It's carbon fiber, so its very light. I have seen no flight time loss.

    That depends on which which set you are referring to. If you are talking about the ones that thedjiguy and the OP are referring to for $250+ then NO, all others then YES. . .
