Default Tuf struts for hawk pro?

After a rather hard landing that snapped one of the normal struts, I'm thinking of getting the Tuf Strut instead of the stock replacement. The pictures on heli-world make the tuf strut look a little lower than the normal ones so I'm mainly concerned with tail clearance. Has anyone tried these struts on a Hawk Pro? Will the normal landing skids work?

Thanks!

Yes they will work - they are the same landing gear system used on their hi-zoot Raven 50. They come with 4 x spacers that go between the bottom of the frames and the struts themselves. Be sure to use them.

Great! Will the metal skids from the normal gear fit the tuf strut, or do I need to buy the full kit (struts & skids)?

Thanks!

You need the full landing gear set. The landing skids on the Hawk are 8mm in diameter, those on the Tuff strut gear (Raven & Predator) are 10mm in diameter.

I know this is a bit late but you want to save half the cost over centurys tuff gear?? buy these instead they are the same thing size etc.
