from Northbridge, MA United States
I got this because the stock MSR landing gear is so flimsy that it splays open in the front, causing the heli to lean forward. Unfortunately this "upgraded" landing gear is even worse that the flimsy stock one.
The battery holder is too small, it doesn't even fit the stock EFlight battery, so you're going have file it down (and void your warranty) even before you try it for the first time.
Once you start to use it, you're going to notice some other flaws. First, it's carbon fiber screwed to a plastic frame, so you're going to be continuously tightening the screws when they get loose.
But the worst problem is that two of the screws protrude into the battery holder. The sharp end of one screw was almost touching the LiPo battery. This is dangerous; a LiPo can catch fire when you recharge it if it gets even a small puncture in it.
I didn’t want to burn my house down, so I went back to the stock landing gear. Over $17 down the drain. You have been warned.
