Added some hobbyking skis to the edge 540 for a bit of snow flying before it got to cold and we went home Razz

Here are the skis: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10744&aff=55290

Tail wheel worked fine for steering. In the videos Sam lands across the field, then he taxis round and takes off again. It is quite a heavy plane for skis so used 3/4 power for take off (that's why as soon as it leaves the ground it goes straight up).

The site is TMFC, Redmarshall field.
