Nice photos Charlie ! I have bought the same landing gear too.

Are the Floating Balls made out of Jablo or PVC ? Did you need to re-enforce them so they wont fall or drop ?

Here are mine -

You will notice I forgot to put the extender on the legs! I think it would have got very wet if I had had to come down in the sea

Hello Charlie,

Yes infact I saw them a little different, and wasn't sure they are like mine.

I suggest that you drill a small hole at the bottom of each leg extender, use some self tapping stainless screws with some washers so the balls don't drop off if you have a hard landing.

Also do you think its better to secure the cups with some small cable ties ? Just for the tight fit ?

A good idea to secure balls to legs - contact glue?l  I would not want to use cable ties - overkill I think and more time in setting up and packing up.

I did send the black legs back and swapped for transparent as the black hides the LEDs.  No re-infrcement needed. The balls on mine re polystyrene i think. But works well.

I have the same set Charlie ! Welldone.


I saw some videos where they reinforce them with a bit of Hot Gun Glue. So if you land a bit hard on the water they won't pop out.

Have a Nice Day Mate ! So nice reading your Posts ! Cheers !!
