Fromme2u,

In your First Flips video it looks like you installed some really wide landing gear.

Pray tell - Who makes it????


Thanks,

Rockohaulic

Sweet Video.

Rock,

That's the Maverik Super Gear. Nice and stable on landings. here's a link:

Mav Super Gear @ RCHeliWorks

Their not that hard to install. Just have to drill two holes into each brace to match up with the mechanics.

I actually broke that set you see there in a crash. I currently have the metal super gear on my bird now. I like them because instead of breaking they bend. Even the crash I had last week, they didn't break. Bent the hell out of them though. They are not as wide as the plastic SG but they are wider than the stock gear. The metal ones are also alittle higher than the plastic SG but lower than the stock. Hope I said that right. I wish I had all three sets to show you a pic of them together so you could see the difference. The metal gear is between the stock(high and narrow) and the plastic Super Gear(low and wide).

Hope this helps you out.

I don't have apic of it ;yet ;but I put a set of Rappy gear on mine. Very wide and looks great IMHO. Cheaper also. Had to drill two holes to make it fit,,,,

Actually my Caliber 30 (well, my girlfriend's Caliber 30) has Raptor gear on it. Much wider than stock.

In fact, I read to boil the gear and "smash" it down some to get it wider and lower. It worked great. I heard this also "aligns" the substructure of the plastic and makes it stronger. We'll see.

Her gear is now 2 inches wider than the stock gear. Sweet!

But Chad's gear looked REALLY wide and low and I had to know where he got it.

How are you guys working around the fact that your TR blades are now closer to the ground?

With the Rappy gear on I measured from the ground to the bottom of the tail fin and it was 3.5 inches. Not sure what the stock C30 gear gave me for clearence, maybe some one can let us know. I REALLY LIKE the wider stance thou fur-sure

Dont land tail low.

Seriously, the slightly lower stance on the Raptor gear has been a non-issue for me. The wider stance makes landings (particularly autos) much more comfortable. I've flown the stock gear, the Mavrik plastic gear, and Raptor gear. I highly recommend the Raptor gear because it works, it's cheap, it looks good, and my LHS carries it in stock (yours probably carries it too - seems most hobby shops carry Raptor stuff).

My girlfriend, Mandy, is just recently hovering with no training gear.

The much wider, slightly lower gear gives her MUCH more confidence and keeps her from tipping over.

The wider gear gives me less pucker factor when she's flying it too!!


The blades being slightly closer to the ground is a non-issue.

I would measure my distance on my tail but.... my tail boom got trashed on my last accident. I will post the distance as soon as I get it back together. This will be with the mav metal SG.
