Need some input-
We have tried the Raptor Carbon Fibre landing gear..
(wasn't overly impressed on cost vs. strength)
Cracked them on a rough/fast Auto practicing for a contest at a funfly...
A little to aggressive on the approach for the skid slide stop
What other companies/manufacturers are you guys using instead of the same old "White" Raptor PV# gear on your 50 or 90's?

Thanks!

I was thinking of picking up a set of these, mainly for the color.

+1 for the super gear. I learned auto's this summer and made it all summer with rough landings with out a problem. If you ask me it made the heli look totally different being black.

Carpe Diem!!!

+4 for the Mavrik gear. Never happier. And if they break they are cheaper to replace.

Are you on the list?

They are not indestructible though - One minute left on my last tank of the day. I bogged it really hard and the engine would not step back up to operating RPM's so it folded the blades back and WHAM!

Strength Testing on Maverick Super Gear..
-kc8qpu-sorry to hear you put it in the ground....
-jschenck--Sorry to still see the ground stuck in yours...

I was just got the gear ready to go on too....

Hey, Does the Raptor canopy clip fit on the super gear okay??
Gear appears thicker in the middle (haven't compared thickness yet)!

Shape the front of the cross member with a sharp knife to allow the clip to fit.

I've been doing the canopy clip mod with the screw for quite a while. This works on the Mav. SG just fine. The clip will be very tight until it stretches a bit.

I had been planning on buying the Mavrikk gear for the color, but decided to try Rit dye after reading another post on here. The gear turned our excellent and only cost me about 4 bucks. Its a cheap solution for anyone wanting a different color. Original post here:

Swoop-
Looking good, did the Rit dye adhere well?
As long as it can take the beating and not peel or scrape off it looks like you got the color change option many guys are looking for!

Let me know how it holds up buddy....
