Stronger Landing Gear for GWS Mini DF

I am wondering what you guys use for a stronger set of skids on the gws mini dragonfly that are also easier to change than the OEM's that come from GWS. The carbon fiber rods seem to break pretty easy on a hard landing. I have been putting a little drop a CA glue on the wedge and repairing the set but man they are hard to get back apart if they break....any suggestions...

Thanks,,

All skids break. Even Superskids. They weight the heli downand decrease flight time. because of the boom support, the boom may break at the support joint on tail impacts.

I assume you are starting out since you are breaking skids. Bend wire twice the shape of a right angled U. Insert like they were skids. The wire bends on impact absorbing energy. Bend them back to shape. When you get better you ditch these trainers and go back to stock skids.

You can try Blade CP skids. They seem to be tougher.
