G10 Retrofit Landing gear or G10 frame with Lg for Elite CP hbird??

Just wondering which was more durable based on your experiences between the retrofit landing gear for Elite which is at the top of the page and the G10 frame and lg for Elite which is down a bit, here's a link to helihobby's site
http://www.helihobby.com/html/hummingbird_upgrades.html

Also, I'd like to know how wide the top portion of the retrofit landing gear is, I need it to be roughly 1.5" to fit the batteries I want to run, I'd plan on cutting that birdseed battery mount off if I went with that one. The other one of course looks plenty wide enough, I'd just have to figure how I'm gonna mount the batteries under there.

thanks

The MIA G10 Frame/TUFF Strut-Skid retrofit fro the Elite is a lot stronger.


Comparison of the kits from the page link you posted click here.

Thanks for the detailed pics, I definitely like the look of your G10 frame better. Looks like I'll be placing an order with Helihobby then. I still don't understand the assembly 100% but I'm sure I will when I get the parts.

thanks again.
