The tracks dont need to be that wide and the mavic arms need to be able to fold with it on imo

I'm expecting the Mavic 2 will have fold out legs, something like the Karma had.

Yes, but it's overpriced at $50...

Okay, got my $50 Arris XL Landing Skid (took a bit longer than they indicated). I have to say, I won't be using it for a few reasons.

1. There is virtually no additional clearance on the front legs. I can see a case where the front leg could catch on something before the skid even came into play.

2. The rear of the skids butt up against the pivot point of the rear arms causing it to push outward.

3. The mounting plate covers a good portion of the bottom heat sink. We all know these Mavics can get pretty hot and I don't want any excess heat being trapped.

4. Although, I understand the high cost as it takes a lot of time to print these, it isn't worth $50 to me. (I wont return it but I wont use it either.)

These are just my opinions and I'm not trying to slam the product. I really liked the idea but it's just not for me.

Does it have any effect on flight, I don't see a purpose for this gadget.

Hallmark,

I don't know because I just got it and won't be flying with it. The intent was to make it easier to land on uneven surfaces and to give the bird a little more clearance.

While it seems flexible enough for uneven landing , I wonder if you had a hard landing would it bounce Mavic on to its side.

I like the idea, but I wonder if it has any advantages over the currently available leg extensions - which I use for field landings without the landing mat.

Do you supply to th UK, or are you prepared to send me one to test and report on, for the UK market???
