The stock gear, as has been noted previously, is crap.

There's probably nothing you can just buy that will bolt on. I completely replaced mine with the landing gear off of my old Lil Banchee. This is the kind that is held on with zip ties. It worked out OK for me. You can also reinforce the gear that is there with some carbon fiber. Then the the two legs together with a wire and it should be fine.

Go to http://tntlandinggear.com They will make anything and any thickness aluminum that you want. Just give them the dimensions on their website. Their products are usually around $25. I've bought two from them and they make a good product.
