The Bravo III landing gear is not very strong. I broke a leg & the forward curved part on one side by day 2! The following simple mod has dramatically increased the strength, with no breaks in a month. The gear legs are T-shaped in section, with a flat outside and a strengthening rib at the rear. I glued 1mm carbon fiber tube in the angle of the T on each leg with CA glue. This mod is very strong, weighs next-to-nothing & is invisible. I did the same along the landing skid. I got the tube at a Kite shop/factory, but some model shops should stock it.
