I fully plan making and putting on some training aids for the Tarot. But I've just recalled reading somewhere in passing that training aids cause vibrations which upsets the 3 axis gyro of FBLs, and therefore should not be used.

Larger model skids should be used instead.

Any thoughts?

I fitted a set of Align 600 skids to a friend's Hobbyking 500, doesn't look out of place and gives a larger more stable foot print.

*****first edit... added this*****
So an Align 500 skid set like these would work on a 450

You'll just need to redrill the screw fixing holes in the legs.

*****second edit .. spelling error correctrion****
Almost fitted a set on my last 450...still might do.

Thanks, Burgess. I'll see if I can find some pics. of suitable sizes.

Perhaps as large as possible without it looking like a pea on a drum. Laughing

Mine's only 103mm (110mm lengthwise between the fixing bolt centres), but then the Tarot is known to be a bit on the narrow side.

The hunt is on!
