TRex LG, the aluminum ones, were to buy?

I searched modefo's, Rediheli and Techmodel. But did not find it. Remember the ones that came in anodized colors? not the helidirect version though. I can't remember who made them or sold them.

I want in particular the grey aluminum gear.

i dont know but i CAN say the gorilla gear is less bling but will last much longer than even metal! i have had mine for like 10 months now and dozens of crashes and still going... my metal broke after maybe a dozen or so crashes...

If you are open to other suggestions I think the gorilla gear is a better concept. The are flexable so they absorb some impact and they don't break. I have heard that the aluminum gear that RChover sells/used to sell used to get soft from bending.

Acually, the reason for the thin metal gear is so I can bend them out to make a lower profile look. I want to drop the Trex

There is a low profile gorilla gear set.

If you are set on the aluminum I am sure you could find a set second hand if you post a wanted in the classified forums.

Would anyone have a used set they want to sell

These in mat black on my rex would be mean looking, front skid flattened some to give a nose down agressive look

Suppose I could use the helidirect alternative or build them myself.

I saw those Nick, thanks for your searches. I have the one you linked last week, cool looking but heavy, bling and not so great at giving in on hard landings lol.
