The foldable Landing Gear Kit for the DJI Phantom, with room for larger gimbals, and a modular design with options for mounting FPV Tx, external battery or dual batteries, or any additonal gear required.
Designed to fit any desired length/height carbon fibre leg extensions (not included) to fit any sized gimbal or camera, and other relevant gear. The legs fold up so the Phantom is flat, and the legs also makes for great carrying handles. If using wing nuts, there is no tools needed, making this very easy to do in the field. This makes the Phantom fit perfecty in a lower case, or make more room in an existing hard case container.
You can easily mount FPV gear, external battery, dual batteries in conjunction with the landing gears modular design. Simply use some the same 6mm tube as used for the skids, and insert into the holes on each base mount for adding your additional gear. This way you can eaily mount it, and shift the location of it, and position your Center Of Gravity in the most optimal configuration for your set up.
You provide your own carbon fibre tubing, and cut to desired lengths. The diameter for the tubing is:
12mm OD for leg extensions
6mm OD for skids & compass arm
The weight for the parts included in the kit is only 33 grams.
Parts needed to complete the landing gear:
2x M4 length 35-40mm hexagonal head screw (see this picture: hexagonal-head-screw-28451-3203651.jpg)
2x M4 wing nut (regular lock nut can be used also)
9x M3 screws for fixing legs etc (optional, you can use a drop of superglue also)
A small bit of adhesive velcro tape to secure compass to mount
1 Q-tip for antenna arm
I recommend White Strong & Flexible Polished, also to paint the parts with a light coat of white paint. The parts stays clean much longer this way, but is by no means necessary.

Disclaimer: This is a DIY kit, so some minor adjustments might be needed. I have been testing this kit for a while prior to open for sale, and it works very well.
I will make a video of the assembly, and update it here by tomorrow.
