The skids on the Furion are one piece unlike the trex.
You may have to drill some new holes for mounting but here are the dimensions of the furion skids.

Approx 96 mm front to back (center to center). Like in this pic below (thanks Nathan)

I don't understand, you can turn Gorilla gear inside out, how on earth can you brake them, what are you hitting dude. It just go's to show you a kid can break anything.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

I agree with Rex-GG should not break. You can use them them till they are distorted from being bent or there are no more treads on the bottom to hold the skids on.

Plenty tough or my first autos

Post a picture.

GG is suppose to be unbreakable it just bends and distorts.

Sounds like the GG does not stand up in a crash if you are below freezing.

I have broke GG also, but it had several previous injuries before it finally broke.

I guess the GG get brittle in the freezing weather, something I don't have to worry much about here in Florida.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.
