Jason (aka 3Drainmaker - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=543347) makes some awesome landing gear. Stands by his work too. I broke a mount and he sent me a new pair.
Here is a short video of testing them out on my f450 in the driveway. Sorry for the distance of the video, but I didn't have anyone to hold the camera.

Short video of testing new Retrax landing gear. (0 min 52 sec)

This is my first build. ESC s are sandwiched in the middle. This is the build before adding Vtx and cameras.
