So I had to shell out and get the Rakon skids. lol
But after the way I crashed it today I'm afraid to put them on!
How durable are they working out to be?

Unfortunately, the Rakon and Microheli cf skids both broke on me on the first crash. They do look good, though. The MIA skids lasted 2 days.

So far, the xtreme skids are holding up after a week.

I've never broken a stock skid, and I fly a lot.

Okay... they say "bacon makes evrything better"... I have to say "so do some LEDs"



There's still a hole on the front of the canopy, but I guess bright white LED and hot glue make up for that... :p

Bisso thanks for posting your design! I love how its ink friendly! Keep 'em coming

My Rakon skids is for display only. The thin carbon fiber does not look like it can take my abuse...

Cool I actually just got extreme skids too. For $8, not bad!

I'll save the chicken skids for when I'm a bit more confident with this thing.
I need a computer radio to limit throws and pitch etc so it will fly more predictable and less boggy first.

I just realized the stock skids are practically unbreakable. Probably the best ones to have on the 3D machine..

Ooh that's a good one I Was liking the red version myself also and am currently using that.
I'll have to do the green one now too. So many canopies, so little time!

That one folds up easy and well.

I too can't figure out how to make the TDR canopy from the papakura designer templates. Would you be able to convert them to the jpg style printout? You can leave out the Blade logo if its too difficult. You should put your own sig on them since they are your own unique designs!

How about a Paper Goblin Canopy/Boom style next!!!
Check out post 138 for some .jpg and Photoshop templates of TDR Henseleit like paper canopy / canopies.

Itís my first attempt to the paper canopies printed out by photo paper. Itís looks awesome after put it on my micro helicopter. But one thing not right is the size. The battery carriage should be covered by the canopy but itís not. I'll look into the size to make sure it scale correctly and print out some more to try out.
