As we all know, the distance between the camera and the ground is about 2cm +.

here comes the problem
when the DJI is landing and the ground is not flat / perfectly flat, the camera will get hit and it might tilt to the other side or damage the camera.

So I'm thinking of using SketchUp to design a longer landing gear

and 3D print it by using Mankati.

What do you guys think ?

Need some feedback. I'm doing this for my internship company.

Thanks ! :)

You may also want to look at the gimbal protector that can be found on eBay and videos of it on YouTube. It attaches at the bottom of the landing gear and goes from one foot across under the camera to the other foot. Looks like a flat plate that provides some protection from items hitting the camera. Not full proof but works well. It attaches with zip ties and is really lite weight.

Gear sucks. It is pretty good for hand-catching tho, and in a year I only got one laceration!
