    Even from moderate falls, the stock landing gear buckle causing the gimbal to contact the ground thus destroying it.

    I assumed someone somewhere sells stiffer/stronger landing gear but none can be found.

    Of course, stronger legs will be heavier and reduce flight time but I'd be willing to take that hit instead of being out $400+ dollars for each crash.

    (And I don't need a lecture that I need to learn to fly better to avoid crashes. The two crashes I have in mind were caused by an ESC factory defect and a battery malfunction.)

    There are some longer legs available that are fairly strong. Raises the camera up higher from crash area. Strength can be added by putting a cross piece at bottom too.
