I just got an old rattler off ebay and it's very hard to open the landing gear. Almost feels likes it's going to break it's so stiff. Is this normal?

Yeah that's how my old Rattler is, I've given up trying to open it as the plastic is turning white.

Try using vasoline or something similar, work it in the best you can with small short movements......man, that sounds sick....
but it usually works....just go slow or it will break.

It not even worth the risk trying to open the landing gear. Go to a hardware store and spend $5.00 on some clear plastic tubing to set it on so it looks like its in mid flight.

Yep... that's why a lot of the vintage ones are broken...
Leave it alone... buy the Target one and play with that one.

take it apart and you can pull out the landing gear and set it into the down or up position without breaking it on the hump much less risky bran new they snap like a twig !
