Default Metal Skid Bracket- replacements?

Where can I get replacement brackets that the skids attach to as circled in red in the pic? Mine are bent from a bad crash and while trying to bend them back they snapped. WOWhobbies does not seem to have that part which is odd.

I use the same landing gear...ONLY for show. They just dont hold up. The stock gear is really the best way to go. Its cheap and with "plastic dip" coating is next to unbreakable from what I have read.

I just looked at a couple vendors and can only find the carbon fiber piece, not the piece you need. But like what was said above, stock skids with plastidip are great. If they do bread, just add more plastidip to that section.

i mended the broken metal piece with a cf rod, shrink tube and wrapped it in string and coated it with CA. Seems pretty strong but not pretty to see. At lease im back to flying till the oem plastic skids come in the mail.
