***Heliup new STRONG LANDING GEARS***

Hello, we just finished production of the first batch of Strong Landing Gears, i attached a pic to show how much abuse they can get without breaking.

Features:

- Very strong Elastomeric material
- Underneath antenna mount on both sides
- Stronger in the area where the skid meets the plastic arc.

Price in the 15$ area, availability first days of January.

I forgot to add they come in 2 versions:

- Regular
- Low profile (about 35% lower)

You need them the most thanh. j/k

The low profile set looks pretty sweet. Do you have any side shots? Are they curved forward?

i was wonderin that too, are they straight down or angled forward? I hate the shogun LG, look dull, Trex's stock are fragile but they loook speedy.

No, i need em more than Tran, i break at least three legs every 10 times that i land. They are sooo fragile/crunchy...kinda like saltine crackers. mH, please have em sooner, in the mean time, i use this desperate measure:

They always break at the joint b/t skid and strut, so i literally eliminated but CHOPPING that #### off. Dremmeled some holes on the struts and voila:

HEY, they work for now!

Can't, the frame has to be rigid, this material is only useful for LG or tail fin. Otherwise they wouldn't make those stiff carbon frames.

Have you tried boiling the align one? I tried and it seemed pretty good. I've not crashed it yet so I can't tell yet

Thank you Boyd.

EddieNewYork: We increased the forward angle by a good 10 and made it a little wider too.


regards,

Corrado

I actually prefer a straight 90 angle, nonetheless they still look good. I'll surely be picking up a set of these. Thanks Corrado.
