It is my idea for shock-absorbing landing gear for quadcopter with F450 frame.
2 legs on opposite sides should be connected some kind of elastic cord, spring or maybe strong rubber band. It should absorb some of impact of hard landing.
Finally printed. I had nothing flexible but it seems that the zip tie also works.

I added source file. Feel free to download, edit, upload it.

F450 base is tilted too.

The leg mount is tilted making the printer try to print into thin air. Took almost 2 prints for me to figure out what the deal was...eventually sorted it. Will post a remix of the mount FLAT.

I have searched all over for a good light weight landing gear. This is perfect! It's strong and doesn't over weigh the quad. I used PETG to print. Thank you!

seria mejor si las piezas estuvieran al derecho o bien puestas para poder imprimir
