LanYu Cessna with skis takeoff and landings video

Did some takeoff and landings today with my homemade skis. They don't look like much but they are functional. Put bungy in front and wire in back. Before I just had a wire in front but the plane would do a nose over on landing.

I just give it full up elevator and full throttle and away it goes.

It is -17C, but great fun.

I hardmounted the skis to the plane and now just put the battery in under the wing. Much easier than having to remove landing gear to put in battery.

Link to video. Can't get to youtube anymore so loaded it to here:

Ok, the green things came off in a hard landing but the skis still work. Wish I could form a little bend in the acrylic ruler but spring will be here soon.
