Default Wider landing skids for Caliber 30 ?

I would like to get wider landing skids for my Caliber. I've seen the maverick ones but they make it sit lower ?!. Anyone recommend better ones. I want to avoid a tail strike and also at the same time have stability on the ground.....

I've seen the Maverikk ones on a Cali at our field and it looks like it keeps the tail out of the grass ok.

The Quick UK gear is a good option and comes in several colors.

You can get them at Rick's for less than $20.00.
I have them on my Caliber 30.
Will probably put them on my Caliber 5 when replacement time comes.


HTH,
Bob

You could always use the skids from a raptor 30..they are wider and sit lower.
They improved stability minimally. I don't know why you're looking for stronger ones, the cali skids are quite strong.

wider yes. LOWER dont want thats the problem. I wasnt concerned about them being stronger. I was making sure the colorful ones above were just as strong as the stock Caliber ones >>

They don't sit that low..the raptor ones will keep the tail up out of the grass

The best replacement skids for the Caliber is the Rapter 50 skids. They look as if they was made for the Caliber.
