Although the Albatross is among the first "drones" I've designed with landing gear, it isn't the first. The first plane I designed with landing gear was the Tomahawk, which relied on its twin ventral vertical stabilizers as skids. Due to the vertical stabilizer/skids' direct relation to the horizontal stabilizers, the Tomahawk would constantly be thrown out of trim by using its landing gear. Since then, I have tried to incorporate landing gear into my drone designs, without hampering the performance of the aircraft it is to equip. The first drone to have conformal landing gear was the "-1G" variant of the popular Dragonfly paper airplane. The "-1G" was eventually used as a test platform for the Albatross, which was designed from the start to feature landing gear. As it turns out, the Albatross adopted the landing gear shape of the "-1G" itself.
Although few designs and concepts preceded it, the Albatross seems an effective drone paper airplane with landing gear. It is a design I am quite proud of it.
