    I'll bet someone will be looking for installation prints and specs soon. Declaring an emergency after an in-flight problem and rolling heavy iron at an airport in response tends to bring out the inspectors. I was there just after and talked with security so it happened.

    Fluidynes are very different skis. And really easy to install once you learn how.

    as to where to set them technically you cannot get them correct... you set the riggers so the tail is just clear of the ground in wheel position on a cub...(tail actually would drag in correct position...) been years since I set up a set

    I have CAD drawings of mounting brackets for large tires & 2500's I used to make(someone else design that I drew up).... unfortunately it's saved in .TCW file from turboCAD(I don't think I have that program anymore)... anyone have a way of opening them and converting to something like .DXF so i can open them in macdraft pro??? I can post them here if anyone is interested

    Only the AWB 2500A skis are approved on 8.50 tires. That said, there seem to be some 2500sout there with 8.50s. Those tires permit you to rig the skis more nose up without the heels dragging. Much better angle.

    the brackets I made(from someone else's design) allowed 26" tires easily (some used 29" allowing wheel to stick under ski a touch, in ski position)

    Yes, FWS Cubs ran those skis with 25 inch Air Wheels with long arms. Not sure if any of those were approved. My 2500s ran 8.50s easily.
