Quick and Dirty Mini R/C Helicopter Landing Skids Fix





Introduction: Quick and Dirty Mini R/C Helicopter Landing Skids Fix

Just got myself a Mini R/C Helicopter, unfortunately it's my first, so I have crashed it many times.
I kept dropping it out the sky so the landing skids broke.

My quick and dirty fix was to use a product called "Foam sealing strip".
The stuff you use to seal windows and doors.
It is really light, has strong self adhesive and as a bonus it absorbs shocks.

Anyway I cut them out with a razor blade to look a bit better.
I used 3 strips of foam sealant (pic 2).
The photos should explain the process

    Lol I have that exact same helicopter and I had it for a year and I've flown it twice because I'm afraid I'm going to break it. I flew it yesterday and I got it about two stories high and it came by me and I just let it fall it was quite funny seeing it fall lol
