We got an initial prototype of our spark landing gear - transparent and will pass colors!

What do you guys think! :)

Hmmmmm.... I'm not sure. I like the idea of the lights shiny through, but for me the best thing about the Spark is its small size. Not sure I want to add things that make it bigger. May as well buy a Mavic.

Conceptually you have done a good job as the led indicators are key, my concern is that it is a big chunky bit and wonder how it impacts flight. As I have been thinking about a way to elevate it off the ground-I thought more of a loop from the bumpers at the bottom out to the arms. Lots to think about. You certainly have a knack for the design

This YouTube shows that style installed and some other bits for the Spark
. I would be concerned about how much of a hard landing the could take

I imagine less damaging than a hard landing without them?

@David Almond The next to nothing weight of the Spark shouldn't be an issue with that landing gear and hard landings
