Ijust changed the strut on my 250 with the new factory ones and now it's too tall to fit in the carrying case. Anybody come up with a remedy for this?

you could take off the head button, it will help but not verry much. either go back to the orginal gear or find a way to take it off without wearing out the mounts

head button
that would help, I'll have to try that and see if it's enough. These new and improved skids seem have different angles. I'm not sure if there's any old style out there or not. It's funny that the design of a part was changed without realising it would make it impossible to use the existing carrying case. Suppose there will be a "V2" 250 case coming out soon....?

I simply cut some of the foam out where the skids go.. Fits fine now..

you can see in the picture the far skid has a cut-out of the foam..

foam
thanks for the picture to clarify, I'll carve out some foam and see if I can get it to fit. Nice S.E., do you think it's a tighter machine than the plain jane 250? I was expecting plastic head and tail components on mine versus the SE, but found them to be metal painted black. I'm wondering now what the differences really are, ..does the S.E. fly better than the 250? What's your view?
