Hey guys, I have been looking for landing gear for the DJIspark, especial ones that are foldable. I have until now not found any compact and foldable landing gear. I decided to buy some pre-made ones on aliexpress and customize them to fit my liking. Watch the video to see how I do it!

Nice mod.

I have the PolarPro gear that friction fits to the battery but not tight enough for me.

I've been launching / landing by hand lately.

I launch/land by hand pretty much all the time but I love this landing gear mod. So practical and badass looking. Nice job!

I agree, I to often palm launch/land but sometimes it's more practicle to land in the ground. More space and safer. Thanks, you should give it a try

I have these lying around.
Thought they would be the perfect combo of guard rings and legs, but in practice I actually never need guards.

I also have separate legs for the Spark, but they are not foldable. Although very easy to attach/detach..

Perhaps this is a good solution. I could keep these on the Spark, even in the case..
Thanks for the tip!

I like your gimbal cover - where did you get it from?

I'm seriously considering this to avoid using landing pad that much (pain in the *** to set it up every time) and especially to avoid taking off from a palm (I've cut my finger badly once when trying to catch Spark on landing without landing pad). Only concern is, I don't want to add additional weight to the drone, and I'm sure this "landing gear" weights around 20 grams if not more, and that could shorter the flight time, maybe considerably.

I don't think it was 20grams, maybe with the prop guard but not when they are off. I don't believe the flight time will be reduced by much if any.

Foldable landing gear is great, well done.. I am using fixed landing gear and it works fine.. Still able to stow the Spark in its box,,;) for info I fly off from my Drone carry case,, not too keen on the hand launch!!
