V120D05CS-PRO Landing Skid Upgrade

V120D05CS-PRO Landing Skid Upgrade

I was sick of replacing the D05 stock skids even after hot glue and everything they end up just being in pieces eventually. So the beauty of this upgraded helicopter is the "pro" motor has a shorter pinion and does not rub on the Extreme landing skid's CF plate. The rear of the CF plate and mount to come fairly close to the main gear though, but so far has not been an issue. The Extreme skid's side plates guard the main gear rather well when the heli crashes. At least from things other than the main gear anyway. The Extreme skid's repair parts are cheaper and they are more durable anyway. The only issue i can see is if you do not bore your hole straight in the D05 main gear for the CS upgrade it will wobble. If it wobbles it might hit the top of the CF plate and screws.
