Sorry I don't understand.

Do you mean the rear legs are the built in ones at the end of the base?
I know that but I'm not using those, I'm having legs on each arm.

If you meant somthing else you'll have to explain it to me I'm sorry lol.

The site says print 4 legs so I did but I think we know what a mess the f3 set of files are in so it's no surprise I've printed yet more bits that aren't used lol.

I've redrawn the base, I'm hoping to print it tonight.

At the back you have only one foot (as you see here: https://www.amazon.com/Mavic-Remplacement-Landing-mavic-MOLDED/dp/B072K8WTSP). There you also see the wholes. The first site on thingiverse has 3legs included: two for the front and one for the back. the back foot extention works well. The front extentions are too wide.

I have no feet for the foldable rear legs.

Ah yes, we mean the same thing. I know it's one part but I was calling them two legs lol.

I'm not using those because the rear props can dig in the ground. I've seen the extended rear leg to replace the small one/s but I think it's better to have somthing on the rear arms.
I need to print my new base then I can put the arms on and see what possibilities there are for having somthing fold up or pull off.
After some rough cog estimations i suspect I'm going to need some weight in the rear so I might even need to make some alloy ones but I'm also open minded in that there may not be a practical way to hide rear legs on a folded machine, in that situation i will go with your suggestion.

I've had computor issues trying to modify the base, my cad program didn't like the number of triangles in the converted solid so each move took up to 10 minutes to calculate from adding a dimension to making a cut or pad it's taken 3 very long nights to do somthing that should have taken no more than an hour lol.
It's done now though so I can start building mine then I can be more help.
