DJI Phantom Landing Gear Kit, includes the Leg Mounts, Compass Mount and 4 Leg Ends.

These mounts fit directly to your Phantom, using the stock screws, and replace your stock landing gear. You provide your own 6mm tubing (preferably carbon fibre or aluminium), cut to the desired length, to give you the height you want, in order to allow for dampening set ups/gimbals/bigger cameras and so on. I have found 5" tube to be an ideal length for my set up, with gimbal and GoPro.

Please note, that the tubing is not included in the listing, they are to show what the assembled kit looks like on the leg extensions. The kit includes 4 Leg Mounts, 1 Compass Mount and 4 Leg Ends.

Carbon Tubes

Most finer hobby shops have carbon fibre tube in these dimensions. I ordered the carbon fibre tubing from eBay (links below):
  • 6mm Carbon Fibre Tube (for skids).

  • These are a beefed up version of the previous Leg Mounts I made, and use in the video, showing how I made the set up on my Phantom.

    Updated, so tubing can be pushed into the holes (which are slightly cones), and secured with a 3mm fixing screw (not included). The mounts are directional, like your props. see pictures above for reference or check out this video of how I assembled mine

    This is a simple DIY mod that replaces the stock landing gear, allowing you to easily make your Phantom taller, more stable, save weight (depending on how long you want your legs and what type of tubing you use) and a better overall look and stance. Only basic tools are needed. I am setting up a blog on my website, where I will post info, videos etc on other mods I have done to my quad, including how to make the leg extensions.

    Beware to mount your Compass correctly, to maintain optimal flight characteristics on your Phantom. It should be mounted perpendicular to the body, in a vertical position. The included compass Mounts makes this very easy when using these legs. I use velcro on to fasten my compass.

    Been working to design a landing gear for my DJI Phantom Vision that would float my quad in a water landing and not interfere with the wide angle on the Vision camera. I modified one of the holes on your landing gear so that I could mount then on the prop arms. The angle is perfect for the U shaped carbon tube landing gear that hold the foam pontoons. I modified the camera end of the pontoons to avoid the lens

    @Usachris Any length up to around 7-8" will work great, depening on what additional gear you use (gimbal etc). I recommend using 3mm self tapping screws, about 4-6mm long. You should find these in any hardware store. I have updated the link above for where I ordered my carbon tube.

    Mine just shipped. Can't wait. Got the rods but need help with screws. Can you provide a link to the ones you used or give further specs? Thanks. I was looking for rods in twill as to match your rendering but I haven't found them yet. Which do you find work better, the 5" or 5.5" length legs?

    @bustmold How is my design a derivative from your landing gear? I've never even seen it, and they don't look of work anything like each other. Please stop spamming my listing with your links...

    @bustmold Yes, #D printing is amazing, and the possibilities are endless. I love seeing others work, as long as they are not direct copies of my work. I would say yours is not close to my design, so there is no problem.

    @bustmold Yes, 3D printing is amazing, and the possibilities are endless. I love seeing other peoples creative work & designs, when it is just that, their own & creative, not copies of others or my work. Your design is not close to mine, so I see not problem. THere are another design here on Shapeways, who did directly copy parts of my Phantom designs initially. Download might be free, but you still need to pay for printing, as most people do not have a 3D printer themselves. Shapeways is not cheap, but they do deliever very high quality prints. I have to pay for the prints myself, just like everybody else buying parts here.

    The right part came to day ;-)

    Will do thanks ;-)

    @stephenwark I think they need the order number from the customer, I'm not sure... They always sort any problems out very quickly though. Glad that your parts are on the way. I can understand the frustration. Let me know if there is anything!

    Thanks simensays, i sent shapeways an email, you sent them an email, i did you get a reply from them and if you received a reply, why did shapeways not follow up from your end? Thanks Stephen
    June 21, 2013, 12:05 am
    @stephenwark I also sent them an email, like I told you, when you contacted me. Shapeways always corrects any mishaps very quickly, but glad to hear it worked out.

    Hi, i just received 4 emails now, i was told they did not get email, but it was through their system i sent the email. They have reprinted the item and should receive it soon. Thanks
    June 20, 2013, 11:46 pm
    Hey Stephen, I had just a chat with our team here. They had already issued a reprint and it'll be on its way to you soon. Just so you know, we did search for previous emails from you, but couldn't find anything. We never ignore our customers :) Sorry for the frustration!
    June 20, 2013, 1:30 pm
    Stephen, that doesn't sound right - they always respond within one business day. I'll walk over to them right away and ask them what's going on!
    June 20, 2013, 1:20 pm
    Still have not heard a word from Shapeways, about the wrong part, i sent an email with no reply, will not buy another item from Shapeways, what a joke of a company they are, unimpressed ;-(

    Thanks, Thank you very much, I got it home, but I'm waiting on carbon pipe ...

    @simensays thanks

    @simensays thanks

    @stephenwark Good. I did the same after I saw your message. They will sort you out. Let me know if you have any questions, and I'll do all that I can to help out.
    June 14, 2013, 1:30 am
    I have sent Shapeways an email, asking them to send the right part.
    June 13, 2013, 9:14 pm
    @stephenwark You have received the compass mount for the Foldable Landing Gear. Please send Shapeways a mail reagrding this. They handle all the processing, handling & shipping.
    June 13, 2013, 12:40 pm
    The compass mount is not a 6mm hole, but a 12mm hole? from the above photo it looks like a 6mm hope to mount on the leg which is 6mm?

    @bentbird Thank you for your feedback! Happy flying :)

    @simensays The legs are 7.5" in length and I have the isolation mount from The additional knuckle on the mount is to give me more angle flexibility with the go pro. It is really nice not to get any of the legs in the video now and to keep a good center of gravity on it. Thank you for the design.
    April 22, 2013, 4:53 pm
    @bentbird Very cool! Tat is the tallest Phantom I've seen, in the early pics :) I have my legs at about 5" which gives me more than enough clearance for the gimbal, as I do not use any antiivibration mounts.

    @uliray I've been asked by other if I could design some prop protectors also. I might design them when I have some sapre time, but at the moment I have my hands full. I would wait for the stock DJI ones to be released, they will be cheaper I believe. higher though,
    April 22, 2013, 3:43 pm
    Thank you @SimonSays you have designed a great part. Ordered some simple pultruded carbon tubing on ebay and now I have the camera clearance I wanted. All of my modifications can be seen here,
    April 22, 2013, 3:31 pm
    any chance of prop protector design?
