    Just got this fitted to my 550 last weekend. These were made and supplied by Vario Copter in the UK, shipped out to New Zealand in just a few days. really nicely made and very effective in getting out of the way of my gimbal when its fitted. I have also installed the Airy navigation light kit plus a super bright LED underneath for easy visual orientation at distance in poor light.

    I just rearranged the Immersion Tx so it protrudes as low as possible underneath the craft during flight when the legs are retracted. Hopefully this will increase the video quality at long range because it will transmit an uninterrupted 360 degrees.

    Here is a short video of my Hex and demonstration of the landing gear operating.
