Indeed, Overlander are still going but I've never tried their lipos. There are a few other shops around worth a look too.

Giant Cod are quite good for things like ESCs and Lipos - In particular I've had a lot of success with the Loongmax batteries they sell:

I've also used places like Robotbirds and BRC Hobbies.

Regarding the undercarriage - I had the beefed up airframe too and that still wasn't enough to keep the undercarriage attached - its not like I'm prone to hard landings either.

I'm not sure where is the best place to get an aluminium undercarriage but given the size of the CF one they supply you'll need something to fit a 25 size plane since so much clearance is needed for the prop. I used a spare one I had from a Hyperion Helios 25 that I crashed - seems to fit quite nicely.
