I've seen dozens of pics that have "Skid Pads" shown. Where are you guys getting these things?

I have always found them at Fun flys
Or at LHS. Automotive rubber fuel hose works great also.Also keep in mind not recomended for sliding autos on pavement, autos in grass can be hairy with them on also

Good Luck Corey I PAY-PAL

Yep, I'm using 3/8" of fuel hose for mine. Even though they aren't glued on in any way and can actually twist on the landing gear pretty easily - they have yet to come off on their own.

a art supply or teachers supply store has the triangle shaped
rubber finger savers that you put on a pencil they are about
two inches long and fit great on the skids. Come in colors also

Wooden balls...I like that. That way you don't have to worry about the friction if you end up doing a sliding auto. Good idea!

I like the idea of the "PVC" skid pads described here...

http://www.runryder.com/t133122p1/

Haven't gotten around to making them yet, but plan to. Probably right after I wear through my skids :-)
