I just put a set on my HBFP. Makes mounting the lipo easy and they take a beating.

makes the Honey Bee FP heavy and fly sluggish, good for beginning hover training tho.

I have the superskid version from Hobby Lobby. I took the tail boom supports off to save weight. I haven't been able to break them yet, so they must be pretty tough. They make mounting the LiPo easier to get the proper balance. Thanks.

Do you know this from experience or what? I put the KingII skids and battery tray on my stock HBFP and it flew just fine plus I was using the NiMh battery pack, and it looks like this kit would be lighter. I am not going to buy this kit to compare though.

How many people here are flying with the Heli Direct Super Landing Gear?

USHobbySupply has this:

Includes a stock frame for a spare or whatever.

Bling,
yes, I used the SSkids when I was learning, but as you get better, the heli will react better if you knock off the weight. I went back to stock but with my newest HBFP I also ordered the king2 battery tray/skids and I expect to get about the same performance as stock with my slomax/DD/M24s.

I have this kit on two different HB's. Similar weight to the SuperSkids, maybe a tad lighter. They work just great and half the price. Doesn't make sense to spend $30 on skids for a $68 heli, IMO.

The SuperSkids3D kit from US Hobby Supply is lighter than the KingII skids/battery tray combo you have. All SuperSkids kits are lighter than the ones that helidirect is selling (which are actually flyingsports brand). There is a difference in price, but there's also a huge difference in the quality and engineering. This is important to some, but not to others.
There is a review here on RCGroups with videos and you can determine for yourself if they hurt the heli's performance. There are also several on the Super-skids.com web site.
For what it's worth, SuperSkids® and SuperSkids Landing Gear® are both registered trademarks of SuperSkids, LLC. and superlandinggear.com also belongs to SuperSkids, LLC. as a ™.
