Too quiet around here.
Any news on the Kratos-Front ?

Was flying my flexa today after some longer break, it is still rocking.

Just throwing this idea out there. With the DD gimbals out there, I would love to see you design a retractable landing gear solution. The cinestar 3 axis works well and incorporates the landing gear, but I think the DD gimbals are the future and they won't likely have landing gear incorporated. There will be a need to get the gear out of the way.

Any plans for retracts?
