Default RE: Better landing skids

Worth considering is that the energy in a crash or hard landing has to be dissipated somehow. If the gear is not designed to dissipate these forces, they will be transfered up into the frame and may cause them to break. It is far less expensive, and a lot easier, to replace the sacrificial landing gear struts then a mainframe piece.
