I’m at the point where the helicopter is starting to fall over, so its time to put on the landing gear.  I’m on page 9 of the manual

  1. Put the skid pipe ends into the skid pipe.  I had trouble doing this and had to use sandpaper to grind down the ends.  Eventually, I was able to push them in.  I left about a 1 mm gap, put some CA cement, then pushed the pipe-end all the way in.
  2. Note the orientation of the U-shaped landing skids.  They are at an angle.  They should be angled forward.
  3. Slide the skid pipes in.  Ensure they are pointing up vertically.
  4. Ensure the both pipes are the same distance from the back.
  5. Put the blue rubber rings on.
