Many thanks drayson.
It is really difficult to install retractable landing gear on this model due to the lack of space inside the wing. We already studied that option at the beginning of the design phase.
We have considered the option to use this model without landing gear, the belly of the fuselage is reinforced and we provide "horn covers" (part number 74,75) which are of course covering the servos and also acting like skids as you propose. Of course folding propeller is necessary but thanks to the slim fuselage inspired on sailplanes designs folding propeller works nicely.
