I 3d printed landing gear mounts that glue on the Opterra 1.2 skid plate that's on the bottom of the fuselage.
I used the landing gear that was from the crashed HK Cessna.

It's the airplane that you and Gary recovered from the corn field for me. I went to the field last Friday to fly it. The landing gear worked but shortly after takeoff the motor burnt out, it started to smoke so I attempted to land it but the tail of the airplane got so hot that it melted and crashed.
I built another airplane today:

Once a get some XT30 connectors I will be able to make a charger cable for it.

If the motor burnt it may have used to many amps. You need to put a Whattmeter between the battery and the main ESC plug to see how many amps are being drawn at full rpm. If the prop is slightly oversize it can burn out the motor. Another way is to feel the motor after a few laps land it and feel the motor. You should not have a hot motor. Drop prop size slightly. Same with the ESC. Check with the Whattmeter and do not go over the listed amps.I have a spare for sale. $20. I do not care if i sell it or not.
