Ya, I have had two crashed and no damage to the engine mounting area.
Ok, flight report from using the gear. It was cool.
It will take off from grass or a dirt road. I was flying from a field with a dirt road (with gravel) going through it. Take off was easy, and very short from the grass or road. The dirt road take off was impressive, it threw a huge plume of dust and rocks from full throttle. Take off from both the dirt road and grass was about 10 yards.
Landings were easy, but I bent the front gear rod landing in the grass. I had to change it to a thicker metal rod.
Now for the great news. Top speed is unaffected by the landing gear. It is still just as fast as it was without the gear.
