    Did you ever put skis on your Bushmaster?
    I have one on floats that has never been on wheel gear. I'd like to put it on skis, and would appreciate hearing about your experience.

    I just finished purchasing a bushmaster on 2440 floats. It does not have cub tailfeathers. I'm wondering if anyone has flown one with/without them and can give pros/cons.

    Thanks
