Custom aluminium skids Skylark/Feda/HB


I just finished some custom aluminium landing skids for my Skylark Heli. They look great. I have seen these around the net for ~19.00 a set plus shipping. Just wondering if anybody would be interest in them for $10.00 shipped with new struts included.

Please post here and let me know. If there is enough interest I will set up to make some more and post pics.

I will need about 10 orders to make it worth my while.

I may be interested... Is the landing gear mount wider by any chance? Or just stock config. ?

I could include slightly long struts, that would make it wider?

I see, I was looking for wider at the top so I could fit a wider battery pack up front...

Update


Just to let you know I have not forgotten. I decided that the skids could be improved and have spent the day at the tool and die shop having jigs made. These should be ready tonight and pics posted.

jamin,

Those look real nice. Are the connecting rods made from carbon fiber or steel? Also, would you happen to know the weight of them?

Michael
