Thanks for the added pictures. I also fly mostly from hard surface. With flying FPV from different locations I figure I'll have some that landing gear would work well and others where belly landing would be better. I kind of cheated and installed a single landing wheel in my fuse that's about half way recessed (ala glider like) so I'm not fully landing on the foam while not creating a snag hazard when/if I fly from a soft field. It works pretty well, but I can't taxi or take off with it as the wing tips just drag.
