Folding Legs prototype legs

Made some prototype legs to help reduce weight and make it much easier to store. 

Let me know if you have any thoughts: 

Folded up: 


Folded down:

  • Hey Kris,

    sorry to post so late to this thread,

    But this is an amazing idea! I've actually been looking for this exact concept so I may use a smaller case to transport both my Y6 And Iris+.

    Have you had the chance to test the legs out?

    Also is there a location to implement the locking screw so the legs stay in place?

    Sorry for the questions, but I'm definitely thinking about attempting to give these a shot.

  • All I can say is "YES!". Have thought about doing that for my Iris+.

    Now take it 1 step further. At takeoff it retracts the legs like the landing gear of an airplane. Then on landing they lower back down.

    So I see you have a 3D printer, which one do you have? - This website is for sale! - down Resources and Information.
