May try this on a model, the owner that lets us fly off his strip says this is his idea.

Those are actually dolly wheels to move the plane in and out of the hanger. It might work on a model though.

Unless he makes "perfect" 3 point landings every time, it would appear to me that the underside of those ski's will still get a lot of wear-and-tear when landing on grass and paved runways.

Re: Two way landing gear on full scale Cub

Some wheel-ski combo's let you set your wheels always "penetrating" below the ski, thus allowing the pilot to 'forget' to raise his skis upon landing at a paved strip! It may look neat on a model but not pratical. Snow and grass is not to scale!! I love ski flying!, especially when it involves fishing!
