Will the PV1583 Raptor G4 landing gear fit Raptor 50's?
I have been using Raptor 60 landing skids on my Raptor 50's since I first tried it. Nice wide stance for landing in not-always-perfect grass pasture. Plenty strong to hold up the weight without bowing... blah, blah, blah.
Now, the original wide stance R50 and R60 gear has been replaced by the new, hollow, narrow stance struts. A bit tedious when spooling down with cyclic and collective on stand-by waiting to see if the bird will tip in some direction.
I can still find the old style gear in stock with companies I don't usually deal with, but would prefer to know if the new generation production run will work.
Has anyone tried the new style G4 gear on it's little brother Raptors?

I love the smell of nitro in the morning.

I haven't tried the G4 gear,I like using the:

It's just as light the regular gear, and a lot stronger.
Just my opinion.

Ugh, I hate that gear. They're friggen huge and look completely out of place on a 50. Maybe a little landing practice is in order?

Wasn't looking for tap shoes. Need off road tires. But really, thanks for your opinion . And for your awesome advice concerning my landing skills.
