    Installed wide landing gear today , cant say I noticed much of a difference left side still gets in the shot , actually seems worse now when the camera is pointed straight down. Anyone else with this setup chime in and let me know how it worked for you.......

    I had the same problem and when I went to the h3-3d it got worse. Even was getting a shot of the gear when the camera was pointing forward and I turned to the right. Got a set of these and problem solved.

    Install was actually quite easy. Absolutely love how it works. Just need to cycle S2 2x and the gear open. Cycle S1 1x and they close. I haven't noticed a big difference. I can usually go about 15 min to about 25% on the battery.

    I was just wondering since you use the course CL/HL switch to operate the landing gear can Naza M mode still be used and operated with the landing gear.

    Yes is can. You lose no functions when installing these. The course lock and home lock still work like a charm. My P2 is in Naza mode.

    I installed a set of wide landing gear I got on eBay. They were like $4. They don't seem super rigid but they do hold the GoPro off the ground which is good enough. I had no problems moving the compass down where it's on a vertical part of the leg. Didn't notice problems with the camera getting legs in the shot.

    One thing, my hard case that holds the P2 and everything now no longer works because it doesn't fit. Might not be a problem for some, but it should have been obvious to me. Ordered another pair of standard legs for $4 shipped.

    The landing gear and props will be visible when shooting in either ultra wide or medium with a GoPro 3+ blk/4 blk. So you you only have two choices shot in narrow or change the stock lens. If your worried about ground clearance which you should be then get snap on extensions for the landing gear.

    As soon as I get time, maybe next week, I'm going to print these ones out:

    DJI Landing Gear

    I think they should work out fine, and much cheaper than an Inspire! lol... ;)

    So I printed these and used them a few days ago.... and for some reason my Phantom leaned backwards on takeoff and the rear rotors hit the ground... happened when taking off in grass, which I've done before... brought it to hard dirt, tilted a bit, then took off. Needless to say I took them off right away when I was done flying. Maybe it made my Phantom off-balance??
