RPM Dromida Landing gear was developed specifically for the Dromida Vista, Ominus, and Ominus FPV drones. The Dromida Vista and Ominus drones are geared towards entry-level pilots, so landing gear with more cushion is a welcome upgrade. The small rubber foot on the stock motor cover doesn’t have enough cushioning effect to save a harsh landing and adds the possibility of damaging the motor or gear system if the cover breaks or shifts during a crash. The stock motor cover is somewhat short as well, making the chances of a blade strike in tall grass a distinct possibility.
RPM Landing Gear for the Dromida Vista and Ominus solves both of these issues and many more. This landing gear replaces the motor cover and rubber foot with a solidly mounted, curved “spring” made from RPM's engineering grade, ultra-lightweight nylons. The curved “spring” landing skid adds impact-absorption to the airframe, helping to reduce or eliminate damage from those questionable landings. RPM Landing Gear also adds an additional 0.63” (16mm) of ground clearance to the Ominus, 0.26” (6.5mm) on the Ominus FPV and 0.55” (14mm) on the Vista and Vista FPV, reducing the probability of a blade strike in grass or during bad landings.
RPM Landing gear spreads the center point of each leg further out by 0.36” (9mm) on each leg, adding much needed stability to take-offs and landings, and the ends have been curved upwards making them less likely to catch or hook when one leg is grounded and the other three airborne. All of this was done while keeping the landing gear lightweight, as the entire set-up adds as little as 2.4 grams* to the total weight of the quad, causing minimal to no performance effects to overall battery life or flight characteristics.
- RPM Landing Gear is sold in sets of four and replaces Dromida #DIDE1126, #DIDE1164, #DIDE1180 & DIDE1220.
- A Phillips head or “crosshead” screwdriver with a maximum shaft diameter of 1/8” (3.1mm) is needed to install the Landing Gear.
- RPM aerial products are backed by RPM's limited lifetime warranty against materials and workmanship issues but do not carry the same breakage warranty as surface products. For more information on the RPM warranty policy as it applies to aerial products, please visit RPM's warranty FAQ page.
- * Actual weight gain or loss varies by quad. Weight variation takes into account the weight loss by removing the original motor cover, rubber foot and any additional screws (Vista FPV) then adding the RPM Landing Gear weight.
