Just wondering, does anyone make 3DMP style landing gear for a regular t-rex?? (like the little bird leg things )
If so, do you have a link?

A german company makes a complete conversion kit for the Rex to make it look like a 3dmp, they also do a complete chassis kit that makes the heli all belt drive, main drive and tail.
I think CaseyJHolmes has one, so drop him a PM for the link, as I cant remember it right now.
High quality though.
If you just want the LG then you could prob just buy some CF sheet and make your own for very little cost.
Just use a face mask when cutting...

For the love of the hobby

Hello,

Yes, Proheli makes 3DMP-style canopy and landing gear. I know because I have one . Check out this thread: http://runryder.com/helicopter/t238...?highlight=3dmp.

I think you mean Heliworkz 3DMP-frame, right?

Here's my T-Rex:

IF you go with the heliworkz version, be sure to get the main belt drive. the heliworkz 3DMP frame has a bad habbit of chewing main gears.

I sold my 3DMP-REX, but may end up getting another one one day. I did not have the belt drive conversion on mine, and had quite a bit of trouble with main gears getting chewed up within the first minute of flight.

Check out http://www.holmesrc.com/3DMPTrex450.html for more pics.. Click pics for larger view.
This has to be one of the coolest looking Trex's out there.. and dave does a sweet job on the frame! It does take a while to receive however, but is usually worth the wait time.
