Default Two piece skid set on Pro ??

Hello all

Sorry if this is a known topic as I haven't spent much time in this section, and/or if this is something that is just sacrilege, but just was wondering why I haven't seen anyone using the two piece sets with the metal tubes with the Pro frames?

Personally and please don't anyone take offence but I kinda don't care for the look of the one piece skid set. But even more so, I gotta think that with as much as so many various different parts of skids get broken at different times in a crashs, that replacing a whole skid set like that over maybe just the one or two pieces you might have to, isn't a the better way to do things.

Anyway, as I mentioned, I haven't spent much time in this section so I don't know if there is some major reason I couldn't used those so I thought I would check and see if there was as I do have quite a few sets of these and even more tubes left over from my SE days.

Btw these are the ones with the single hole in the middle and the two raised tabs that keep it from spinning, not the old SE ones with two screws on the outside.

Thanks for any help

I used to use 450 Sport skids on it, breaks just as the 1 peice skids do. Pro skids feel more robust to me.

Here is a pic of my skids. cost $3.00 from HK, son of a c!@t to fit, tight was not the word had to use lubricant .

Sorry don like the one piece skids look cheap and tacky.

I'm not sure the stock 450 two piece skid would fit on it, but a little drill and a little dremel can make anything fit.

I have a set of the white Tarot skid bars PN: 45050-01
http://www.ac-rc.com/product_info.php?products_id=851

Then I have a bare 450 Pro frame that is put together and tried them on it and they fit just right.

The tabs are nice and tight up against the frame so there will be no slop or rotating.

The bird I'm actually going to build is a Pro V2 and I have the a bare frame for that but I don't have it assembled and its still in the bags and numbered so I can't really try them on it but I think the frames are the same width.

Basically am doing a Pro V2 this way from parts and then stuff from my 450 SE V2 for all the electronics and a what ever else will work.

But I know the skid bars from a SE won't so just wanted to see if I could use these without any issue.

I got pro skids off of ebay. A 2piece set. Everything fit just fine.
They fit whatevercheapo 450 metal skid tubes that I also
bought off ebay on a different order.

I have had my eyes on those my self, looks like it leans a little forward, raising the tail a little. That will be great when it comes to landing in grass!

and if not it'll be an easy mod to drill some new holes to get a nice rake angle.


edit: just ordered mine
