What skis would work best for this plane? I was thinking of putting some skis on for the winter.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the link. Do those work good?

Does anybody know the weight of the stock wheels to compare to those skis?

Does the weight of a 2200 mah battery stress the landing gear too much?

What are the current best ideas for beefing up the weak firewall?

Thank you!

hahaha no 2200's are all i use in my plane. dont worry about "stressing" the landing gear. they do what they where intended to do. just after a while they get a little too bendy. but i havent replaced mine yet and iv been flying the plane for 6 months now.

Thanks,
A movie (not me) with the skis attached (the fellow did change to another type of "legs" but it is not needed), see attachements
sneeuwvliegen Funcub (0 min 42 sec)

Stock wheels are 61 grams (together) whilst the skis with mounts weigh 121 grams. So 121-61= 60 additional grams to bring up there....that's no problem at all! PS: the spring (resorts?) system on them keep them in an upright position so no worries there either
Greetings

Hi there, I agree
I even use 3000 packs that are about 260 grams! iso 2200's that are about 185 grams. Not had a tough landing so far with the heavy ones and must say that as long as you allow the landing gear to do their job (landing on grass iso concrete) then it is the smoothest ride ever. It keeps on amazing me, each time I bring it down to the ground.
Ps: flight times I get with the 2200 30C about 12 minutes and the 3000 20C 16 minutes when flying steady. I do have a buzzer attached all the time so I don't get surprised after doing a couple of stunts. Set the buzzer at 3.7V. So early enough to land with even spare line ups if needed. It never bepped so far!!!

Hi bluhammer, thanks
on the Dutch forum someone thinks it comes from the Calmato st 1400EP, Me I can't say. Does look great but not really needed according to others, besides it adds up to the weight...

I like the looks of the stiffener kit that Gary Morgan sells. Can you get access to the ESC under it if need be?

Thank you!
