Default Keep breaking the landing gear...

Has anyone come up with a way or an idea to reinforce the landing gear so they don't break so easily?

Other than landing better because I haven't seemed to master that yet.

I've been trying to come up with a V shaped lightweight piece of CF or something which would brace the gear against the body but can't come up with anything.

Thank You.

Use a piece of plastic tubing to support the landing gear at the wheel.

Mine is ugly since I didn't bother to find the right color and to cut and glue it properly.

That is actually very clever!

I will add that to my bird even though I can land but still admit that I make mistakes.

At a hundred feet in the air I wont even notice it,OK,with me eye site at two feet I wont notice it.

A ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure.

Here's a tip,never age.
