    I make soldered wire frames. They are quite strong. Glue a gift card to reinforce the bottom of the fuselage. Drill holes for 4" zip ties. Loop the ties over bamboo skewer inside the fuselage. Put a drop of CA glue on the zip tie.

    On hard landings the wire may bend and is easily bent back. On really hard landings (crash) the zip ties break instead of the fuselage. Straighten out the wire and zip tie back in place. Here are my Simple Cub and Schoolgirl landing gear.

    Nice work TooJung2Die, I think I will do something similar to your landing gear. What size wire did you use?

    Those two are made from landscaping flag wire. I have also held the same landing gear frames to the fuselage with rubber bands looped over bamboo skewers sticking out the fuselage sides like wing hold downs.

    I have a 2830 but it was pretty fast(to me) on my bloody wonder. What about the 2208 1100kv on a 9060 apc? (I dont have sf). And would a 1250mah be heavy?
