    I just bought a set on Ebay for around $40. I haven't installed them yet. They weren't made for Iris+ but I think I can mount them. Now, I need help in figuring out just where I plug them into the Pixhawk and the right way to set it up on the controller and the Iris. So, if anyone has a clue, PLEASE let me know. Other than that, I'm real happy with the Iris+ and I'll buy another one if someone is wanting to sell...

    EN- Give these a look as well. 3DR IRIS Retracts-No Fuss Plug And Play The video shows how to set up the Pixhawk...you will need to assign a command to the Gear switch on the controller. Two somewhat detailed tasks you'll need to perform.
    This company engineered a mount that uses the existing payload mount screws under the Iris+ fuselage. IMP Concepts has these: 3DR Iris Custom Stealth Carbon Edition Retracts DIY Set - Made to Order (Plastic Parts and Legs Only) More wiring work tho.
    Essentially personal choice. I will likely use the floc ones as I need space for a gimbal carrying a Canon 330HS camera.
