Blade 130x landing gear fix

I am loving the 130x. And driving it into the ground, practising all manner of stupidity, on a regular basis. It is holding up well for me - 11 hard crashes in one day and still working when I left the field.

However, I have broken some landing gear. Hobby dealer is 2+ hour return drive and does not always have stock. So I tried zap, shoegoo, epoxy, gorilla glue and contact cement - no luck.

Heat shrink! - works great on a break. Two layers if you want it more rigid. A little slow zap on the gear first hold it in place, heat to shrink, and back in the air. Those short pieces that come with the Deans connectors are a perfect fit.

Very nice, Jeremy. Will have to keep short pieces of H/S tubing in my heli toolbox now...
