Nice item, working well (so far).
The major problem is that the T connectors are not holding the tube correctly (those that are parallel to the ground) and I need to find a way to have it stay in place or my Nova will fall on its side.
A minor issue is the noise. Why the motors have to be so noisy?It does what it says it does - those looking to use this on a different quad frame will probably not have too much trouble - it secures with screws and is more than enough structure to hold up the nova with full action cam payload. I purchased this setup to get the action camera a bit further off the ground. It would be nice to have carbon legs to save a little weight - but the price is stellar. Like the other reviewers, the motors on these is loud but functional. It is worth the price for sure, just make sure you do ALL your setup with the quad upside down - do not stress out these motors as it doesn't appear there is a safety device built in.A little loud for my liking when activated, but are made from aluminum, and with metal clips, it looks good and gets a great effect when I take off or land. Throws other people off when they move haha.These are nice. Very easy to put together. These retracts should have been the landing gears that came in the original box. I got mine one sale. If I had known they were this nice, I would have bought two. I am using a Chinese Gimbal ($40) and I have 4 inches of clearance, under it. I had to attach the Gimbal mount to the Nova mount. When you are putting the legs together take the screws out of the lower leg (one at a time) and use a little thread lock. There is a brace that attaches across the bottom on the front part of the mount. I did not use that. Nice for $35. Great value if you can get on sale.great retracts at a bargain price we all know the cx20 is a decent quad but the sock landing gear sucks so i had been looking all over for retracts i had seen some machines 1s but they looked very heavy so i choose these they work very well and are very light my quadcopter looks cool and every comments about them thanks hobby king really great product i highly recommend them to allBy far the worst product you could buy, one leg went down once then died, the other leg was dead on arrival. Shipping back to HK costs same as the product. Now you are warned.If you want a full working set of these then buy two pairs.That's what I had to do as no spares are available so I couldn't repair the knackered mechanism on the first set.The second set had a really bad vibration in one of the operating mechanisms so I ended up with one operational set.I still love the look of them.But they are rubbish.Overall rating is two stars just because I love the look of them.Already bent one of the feet due to a minor hard landing in the wind so they don't handle normal flying too well either.I'd only buy again at a seriously reduced price.Thanks HK for bringing this leg, now we can have a legless footage :)
This is about the biggest bargain I have ever got from HK. Simply excellent. I would still be happy if I'd paid double the price. Got them working on my CX-20 with Q-3D gimbal in literally 10 minutes from opening the box: plug and play. Actually way better, (stronger and more stable) than the stock legs, the retraction is just icing on the cake. If you are running a Nova or CX-20 with a gimbal, you need these legs.
This thing is awesome! I have a couple of suggestions. I noticed allot of people were having issues with the motors not working or burning up. After installing these puppies, Leave them in the down position, and disconnect the leads to your quad while getting it initially setup, otherwise the servos will tend to want to retract and move while turning the radio on/off. Which while it's on the ground may be hard on the motors, lifting the weight of the Nova. Another suggestion, before your first flight or any flight, I would recommend checking the tightness of all hex bolts that hold the assembly together. I have had a leg loosen up mid flight causing it to move back and forth in the arm, I also Lost a leg while in flight, luckily it didn't fall far and I was able to easily find it. But it made for an interesting landing with only one leg. Tighten... Tighten... Tighten.. Maybe even tighten, and put a dab of glue on all the bolts. Other than these minor things, this landing gear is great, and well worth it.
