Guys, I solved the gear problem with this model. After discussing the problems with the stock gear legs with Mike at F3AUnlimited, I opted for the PT carbon fiber F3A gear legs. They fit perfectly and are easy to install. With the 19x12 Falcon CF prop installed, I've easily got 4" of clearance and the model balances and tracks perfectly. Also, the original wheel pants and axles fit on the new gear without any need for modification. I did not transfer the "spats" from the factory gear legs, but have not noticed any flight performance difference with them gone. Happy Camper overall and not a single prop strike since making the conversion.

PT Carbon Gear Legs

I like your solution to the ground clearance problem on the Mythos 125 and I would like to try this. However, when I called Mike at F3A he couldn't recall the style of the PT gear that he advised. Can you please clarify which of the two types that you used? One pair costs $91 and the other costs $96. Not sure which I should buy.

FlyGuy, Do not get the swept back design. That changes the balance of the model on the ground and makes it prone to tip forward. F3Aunlimited sells the right set for $91. The $96.50 set is the wrong set with the swept design.

That was my first choice, glad I waited for your confirmation. Thanks for your help!
