  • Additional comments:
    • For loosening and fastening the phantom compass don't use a screwdriver with a magnetic head!! And make sure that you mount the compass perpendicular to the body, in a vertical position for best flight performance.
    • If you decide to go for the color white, than keep in mind that this color can become discolored over time (sun, dirt, touch etc.).
    • For best flight performance I recommend you do a compass calibration after installing this upgrade.

    I can not be held responsible for any kind of defects or damage that arise when performing this upgrade

    @cuda352 This landing gear is not designed for the DJI F450 Flamewheel so it will not line up with your chassis

    I have a DJI F450 Flamewheel will this gear line up with my chassis??

    @123canvas This landing gear is not compatible with the current Phantom 2 Vision because of the big gimbal mount. By the looks of it the new Phantom 2 Vision + has a much smaller gimbal mount so there is a good chance it will fit but I can not guarantee it. Also I don’t know where the antennas are located. This landing gear has two antennas that you can mount on three point (two on the front and one on the rear). I hope this helped.

    Hello Maikel, I bought this landing gear a few months back (phantom1). Will it fit the new phantom vision+?

    I really like this design however the print is very bad quality. I attached a picture so you can understand what I am talking about. 2 of the 4 feet are like that, making the legs constantly falling of which is annoying. I will have to probably go back to the original landing gear as shapeway refused to send me new prints. Hope this comment helps. Alex.

    Has anyone had issues with the compass being that close to the motor and having the magnets in it affect it?
    February 26, 2014, 6:57 pm
    @rickwade335 Thanks! This Landing gear set has standard two antenna mounts so you don’t have to specify how many antennas your model has. Depending on your model you need both antenna mounts that are in this set or you will have one spare.

    Great Design! So when I order these landing gear for my Phantom v.1.1.1, do I need to specify Two antenna Landing gear or do all of them come that way now?

    @maikelsdesign Thank you sir. How long does it take for delivery to the east coast USA?
    February 6, 2014, 3:08 pm
    @Wangta No it is this version (this page)
    February 6, 2014, 3:04 pm
    @maikelsdesign thanks for the reply. Is that one this version or is there another product link I should go to?

    @Wangta Hi, just updated the model. Updated: second antenna mount added for new generations Phantom 1 and Phantom 2. (there is now CAN-Bus mounting supported!!) There are 3 antenna mounting points now, two on the front for the Phantom 1 and one on the rear for mounting one antenna mount on the rear and one on the front in case of the Phantom 2

    I assume these work on the Phantom 2?
    February 6, 2014, 2:03 am
    Do let us know when the p2 version is available . Waiting eagerly.

    Hello, I want to buy your DJI phantom foldable landing gear, but is it possible to have 2 brackets for the antenna because my DJI V.1.3 Phantom of October 2013 has 2 antennas and cables 1 cable compass (GPS). thank you

    Thanks for the Info.

    @pma4x4 The total weight of the plastic components is about 25 gram, The total weight of the landing gear with aluminum tubing and screws is 41 gram (160mm tubing). I don’t know the weight with carbon tubing but it wil be lighter.
    December 25, 2013, 10:24 am
    Would you have any idea of the weight of either just the plastic components or a total weight with the carbon fiber tubes.?
    December 24, 2013, 5:16 pm
    @bluecloud45 I have not yet had the chance to checkout the new models (DJI Phantom 2 or vision) so I’m not able to say if it will fit on those models.
    December 17, 2013, 2:46 pm
    Will this folding landing gear fit the DJI Phantom 2
    December 16, 2013, 12:35 pm
    @davcenas I don’t have a DJI Case so I’m not able to provide you with a answer for that, but if you’re looking for some dimension of the DJI Phantom with foldable Landing gear installed check out my comment with image attachment six comments below.
    December 15, 2013, 2:21 pm
    Will the folding gear fit in a DJI case ? with lid down ?
    December 14, 2013, 5:05 am
    Hello, On my new DJI phantom I have two antenna clables and one GPS cable. How to do to adapt them with your product? Thanks
    December 8, 2013, 3:21 pm
    @pma4x4 The Battery door upgrades have better snap lock than the original battery door. My designs can only fit 6mm tubing, so 6.35MM will not fit. If you cant get 6mm aluminum tubing in your area I suggest you go for the 6mm carbon tubing from ebay.
    October 23, 2013, 7:57 am
    Here in the U.S. I can find 1/4" tubing which is 6.35MM. That is a .010" difference. Would this still fit? I dont want to force anything and have it brake.
    October 23, 2013, 12:20 am
    @maikelsdesign Perfect, thanks. Another question. does the big battery door lock in better to the housing when ti snaps shut? is it more secure then the original door?
    October 22, 2013, 2:48 pm
    @pma4x4 you're right sorry! The height of the Phantom is 95mm, width is 485mm (with 9” props) and the length is 330mm (see image attached).
    October 22, 2013, 2:15 pm
    @maikelsdesign Are you sure you got those measurements right? because 130MM is only 5.11" which is smaller then the 9" props. DJI has general dimension but that's with the props outs and not even fully out. Thanks for the quick reply!
    October 22, 2013, 1:44 pm
    Another question, is it worth going carbon fiber for the weight savings over aluminum tubing? do you have a comparison weight?
    October 22, 2013, 12:20 am
    I will have my first phantom this weekend! Already have some parts sitting waiting. I plan to add some of your great designs to the list of upgrades. I do have one question in regards to the folding gear kit. Can you by chance give me a rough total height when folded (with props) and a total outer dimension? I have a old Pelican case I think may work with the folding kit but I need to know how tall and whats the overall width x length. Thanks!
    October 22, 2013, 12:19 am
    @DIE_KUH Yes I’m confident that the folding mechanism is sturdy enough! It is made of the material strong and flexible and it’s very suitable for this kind of use. Your concerns about a hard landing are understandable so I give you an example to indicate the strength of the foldable mechanism. If you drop the phantom (without any cargo) straight down on a grass underground from a hight of 30/40cm it will not fold out but will bounce bag or fall over. If you let it fall from a higher point or from an angle the chances that it will fold out or break are much higher, but than it’s more a crash than a hard landing I think. I hope this answer your question.
    October 15, 2013, 10:08 am
    Are you confident that the folding mechanism is sturdy enough? I have the feeling it might break or fail to "snap in" over repeated use, or if you're not careful enough handling it when the legs are folded out. Could a hard landing make the legs fold out or is the Phantom too light to generate so much force?
