    Default New Airdale Skis

    Rather than further Hijack the other Airdale Ski thread, I'll start a new one.

    These skis have about 20% more surface area than the old design.




    Here are the new design Airdale skis, assembled.

    (Please excuse the photo quality, they were take with my phone.)





    Installed on my plane.

    I got them out today in what little snow we have at this time. Hopefully have a couple of videos up on YouTube shortly...

    Thanks for the videos! I wish I could put skis on my kitfox. Those look like they would pretty easy to put on and remove after the initial installation.
