I have my receiver and satellite mounted on the arms with velcro. No white flashes.

I can do that tomorrow. Right now it is setting in it's travel case and I have a 12+ hour day looking me in the eye. For a visual, think arms 3 and 6 with a small piece of velcro on the side of the arms facing backwards. I have an AR8000 mounted on arm 3 and the satellite on arm 6. My LED is wedged between the top and bottom plates behind the IMU. My vTx, Immersion 5.8 gHz 600mw with cloverleaf antenna, is mounted on the right leg when viewed from the rear. No gimbal yet, waiting for 2 Axis Zen15 for Nex5N.

After seing Ferdinands landing gear, has anyone tried to replicate retractable landing gear from a Skyjib? Design is quite simple and could be done for much, much lower price that Skyjib is selling it.

It is only one servo on one side which turns in one way and turns both tubes which have legs fitted.

Waiting to hear back from PH and see if they made an adapter to the s800 for that exact landing gear.

what could also be very interesting is are DW XMR retraceable once they are out.

At the same time though, if this is really the DJI FB page they announced that they are working on it

I'm willing to buy any type of retracts for a resonable price. I had plans to make them on my own, but I don't have enough free time right now.

Very good option would be if original legs can be transformed, since they are quite light and stable.

Sorry I don't own this. I found it on the web. I only had a chance to see it once. It is very simple design, but I can't remember the exact procedure.
