Frankthetank:

When in doubt, require that person to produce the rules for Landing Gear from the Chapter Approved 2004 VDR article. If he cannot, then they don't have landing gear and the problem is solved

However - on a more sportsmanship level, just know that Landing Gear only come into effect at the beginning of the movement phase if you choose to "land" or move. After that, having landing gear is meaningless.

Cheers!

Got it in one; you stay still, you don't crash.

The DF will crash...but never leave home without your Decoy Launchers, for it will save your DF 9% of the time! (Hey, it's better than 0 right?) ^-^

perhaps that roll is taking into account the probability of rolling a five in the first place? im not sure but whatever the statistics its well worth it for 5 pts.
