Awesome, I have (access to) a 3d printer, waiting on my air to arrive. Would PLA be a suitable material?

Thanks! No, these need to be printed with a flexible material. They are pressed onto the legs. I used Verbatim Primalloy (TPE). Flexible PLA could work.

Yea - did some in PLA that clip on. Need to iterate a bit to get the fit better.
The Air's legs are quite difficult to measure with a caliper. There's no symmetry and the faces are all tilted in different angles. I did a few iteration prints too before arriving to the final version.

Normal PLA won’t work, these need to be printed with a flexible material. They are pressed onto the legs. I used Verbatim Primalloy (TPE). Flexible PLA could work.

Yes, they are meant to be flown with.
