I didn't say put the gear on a stick, go reread that sentence.

My suggestion is to either put the gear on an stick to flying off land,
Oh. AND stick to flying off land. Not put the the gear on a stick. Late night reading error. My sincere apologies.

Anyone use both gear and fly off water? Maybe us silicone to plug gear hole when converting and remove silicone to put gear back on.
