No design flaw with the current landing gears. There was many people asking us if we would do a tuff strut conversion for the Whiplash. So we listened to the people and gave them what they want!Miniature Aircraft

What are they predrilled for?

Thanks.

I converted mine a while back and love the look....give the Heli a very aggressive stance.

I just installed the upgraded landing gear and although I was apprehensive about the cost, in typical MA fashion, it didn't disappoint me. Well thought-out quality with all the necessary hardware included. I'm glad I bought it.
I'm sure this one-piece design will do more to protect the tabs on the bottom of the carbon fiber frame sides and the flexibility of the struts are a bonus. Built-in shock absorbers are always a good thing for me.
Thanks guys.

Can a person buy a Whiplash kit with the "Tuff Strut" option instead of stock landing gear?
