DJI Phantom Landing Gear Kit V3, includes the Leg Mounts, Compass Mount and 4 Leg Ends. Now with ever wider stance than earlier.
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 taller gimbals/camera set up/dampening mounts 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. Leg ends/caps has been updated for a snug puch fit, with screw holes for mounting. I recommend using a drop of super glue.
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).
The leg mounts are directional, and there is a small marking under each leg, to easily identify (1-4 dimples refering to the arm number, see picture diagram). 1 = front left arm, 2 = rear Left arm, 3 = rear right arm, 4 = front right arm. This is when the Phantom is viewed from the front, with the battery door towards you. As seen in the pictures, these legs are not symetrical (stance) - the front legs are slightly wider, to not get in the viewfiner of the camera, and the rear legs are strutted back slightly. This is done in order to get a wider and more stable stance. See the last two pictures in the gallery. The other Landing Gear Kit, V2 has the symmetrical stance, albeit slightly narrower.
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 http://vimeo.com/simensays/phantom
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. www.simensays.com
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.
