On the Heliproz site they have this set of landing gear: Mavrikk 30/50 SuperGear Has anyone used these? Are they strong, or is it better to stick wit the stock gear?
Thanks

Thats what I was thinking about, the canopy. Not worth the effort really, and the stock ones are tough, until you crunch them .
Thanks for your help.

The mavrikk ones are definitely not better in my opinion. I bought some of the black ones a couple months ago, and finally got around to putting them on last weekend. They use a small metal clamp to hold the skid onto the rest of the gear. The problem is, the holes in this clamp are approximately 1 millimeter off from the holes in the pieces they attach to. This makes it incredibly difficult to get the screws through the holes without bending the crap out of the clamp. Additionally, the crosspieces are incredibly sharp and you will most definitely be bloody after an attempt at assembling these. If you like playing with knives go for it!

I think the Mavrikk gear you are refering to is alu gear right ? They have two different kinds. Has anybody tried the supergear ?

Miniature Aircraft Tuff Struts, the ONLY other alternative. Lower canopy mounting is still an issue, but the gear is tops.

They work perfect for me!

I have the Super gear and they work perfect. You don't need any mods to make the canopy fit either. I like them because they are lower than the stock gear and they are black. I have always liked black skids on a heli.

Strut spacers

When you use the "low rider" type struts you may need a spacer to get your helis tail rotor blades out of the dirt. If you have an ACE hardware or Loews you can buy nylon spacers in what ever size you need from the nuts and bolts section. You can also use them on the skids to save your struts from being eaten up by hard surface landing areas. I've looked at Home Depot but I can't find them there.
