Hello everyone. Aren't these quads fun! Just a post to show my method of mounting the GPS/Compass mast and the modification I made. The pictures will explain the lower bolt on location as well as the upper lock screw adjustment feature. This sure makes dialing in the compass a breeze. Thanks, Dave George AMA5129

Landing Gear
Shown on my model are the MR landing gear from Alanta Hobby. The stock height was way to high for my 450,so I did some simple surgery by cutting the legs off. I then bolted them back together. The overlap lost about 2.25 inches. Now it looks right and functions well with my JVC helmet cam. Thanks, Dave

Landing Gear
Yes maybe to strong for a 450. I would buy it again. Thanks, Dave

I like your idea of the compass on the mast with an adjustment screw but I never left mine mounted on the mast. I felt it was a "mast of death" in the event of a tipover and didn't want to shell-out for a new GPS from a simple crash. I just used two-sided tape and mounted it directly on the top frame plate. There it was quite safe from any standard impact and it had the same performance as when I had it mounted on the mast.

Jello
No Jello with this landing gear set up. I would like it to be a little softer but it is not bad at all. Thanks, Dave
