Also I've never had a problem with the plastic landing gear ripping out on takeoff or landing!?

I glue them in the foam pocket with 5 minute epoxy and the only way you get them back out of the foam is with a razor knife and patience...

I've had 'carrier style' crash landings that have snapped the metal landing gear at the bend clean off and the plastic mount was still fine, although the metal stub was a $#%* to get back out of the plastic mount...

Only time I've ripped ONE out was a straight down full throttle mustang crash into asphalt! It lived to rebuild and fly again, and again and again... (don't ask, low level crazy aerobatics at dusk, guess I was bored. )
