RPM LaTrax Alias Landing Gear solves ground clearance and blade strike issues, as well as helps to dampen rough landings. These replace the little rubber foot with a solidly mounted, curved “spring” made from RPM's engineering grade, ultra-lightweight nylons. The curved “spring” adds impact-absorption to the air-frame, helping to reduce or eliminate damage from those questionable landings. This Landing Gear also elevates the Alias an additional 0.8” (20mm), reducing the probability of a blade strike in grass or during bad landings.
RPM Landing gear also spreads the center point of each leg further out by 0.45” (11.5mm) each leg, or 0.9” (23mm) in total, adding stability to take-offs and landings. We also curved the ends upwards making them less likely to catch or hook when one leg is grounded and the other three airborne.
The last challenge was to keep the landing gear lightweight. For the ground clearance increase, stability and added crash protection gained with RPM Landing Gear, the entire set-up only adds 4.5 grams to the total weight of the Alias, causing minimal to no performance effects to overall battery life.
- Only weighs 4.5 grams for all four landing gear!
- Adds 0.8″ (20mm) of extra height.
- Replaces LaTrax #6649 rubber feet.
