Flying off the snow is of course possible from wheels, but a lot more fun with ski's which are easy to make and with a little ingenuity can simply replace the wheels. waterplanes can be used to.


The seamaster waterplane is great fun to slide around on the snow.

Here is a selection of aircraft flown off corex ski's in the recent winter snow. Fun fly type planes are particularly good off ski's.

Below snow at the Trent Model flying club at the Nottingham race course, note the snowman.

Above  snow at the leen valley model flying club at Goosedale.

Left is a couger fitted with large correx ski's similar in size to floats, the rear mount is spring loaded as a shock absorber and to allow rotation on take off this all worked very well.

To the right is a collection of planes equiped with ski's at goosedale.
