Jakub, that sound interesting, but I have two thought.
1. the phantom tread mounts is metal inserts anchored in plastic.
2. the phantom LG, is connected, which means any impact is distributed between two attachment points.
2.5 I have impacted the phantom to the ground at max speed.. it rolled like crazy, not a scratch, LG in perfect shape. so current LG strength is not the issue, other types of functionality is the goal for sure.
Im going to do a bit more crash testing of the low-rider fpv gear I printed, my current biggest concern is what actually happen when the legs get a strong sideways impact (sideways to the leg = 45 deg angle force to the phantom)
I would be curious to explore a XP2 quad style landing gear, with a completely suspended landing gear and hang the camera from the landing gear like the XP2.
