Cheap Carbon Landing Struts

I was browsing eBay when I stumbled upon this landing gear. The price seemed a bit too good to be true and I had no dimensions. Well I decided to take a chance and purchased 8 pairs. Price came out to $19.31 shipped.

Received my gear yesterday and you can see the dimensions from the pictures. The main strut is 145mm. Weight is 18 grams for both struts. These seem very strong and should do me well in AP/FPV planes.

I feel I got a smokin deal on this. HK has similar carbon gear for $18.75. No screws and not drilled.

hey Nightstone,
I got these struts, but don't know the best way to attach the wheels. What do you recommend?

I wish these struts were actually shorter.....they are so long that I'm going to have to mount them under the wings instead of the fuse.
