It is impossible to attach the landing skid if the bottom plate is already attached to the top plate. Take the black landing legs and place them into the thin slots in the top plate. These slots should be next to the left and right arms. Align the hole and then use some screws and nuts to secure them.

There should be some thin black cross-members for the legs in your kit. Some people glue these in place but I used electrical tape.

The actual skid piece goes on the bottom of the legs, it has slots so it stays in place but they still tend to fall off very easily. I've used electrical tape to secure them.
