Default Skids! What skids!

I'm really tired of replacing skids on this model. The slightest hard landing and there's another order for skids.

I've tried 3d printing some like the radon heli CFX skids but they're not robust.

Are there any flexible skids like the 450 gorilla skids that will fit this model?

I felt the same after my first landing which wasn't hard but firm and they just cracked up! I made up an adapter plate and fitted up a set from the Dominator TRex 470L (P/N H47F001XAT) These gave me increased ground clearance especially for the tail.....experiment with other skids by zip tying to the original till you find what works best for you. This is one area where Align have it over Blade!

landing skids alone from 300x, 300cfx, 250cfx etc are one reason blade helis drive me nuts. it was ok when aftermarket options were readily available. your best option is find a pair of trex 450 landing gear of some type and modify them. i wish gorilla gear was still made but there just isn't enough of a market i guess.

may be a couple CF options left but they are not very forgiving either. def better than stock!
