I saw what I thought were ski skids on a mini being used by old man mavic a few weeks ago and ordered some through Amazon UK HOT1950s Landing Gear Extensions Leg Height Extender Protector for DJI Mavic Mini Drone, New Upgrade Extended Landing Gear Leg Support Protector for DJI Mavic Drone Accessories: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Outdoors. They took a few weeks to arrive and I must say I am really pleased with them. The colour is the same as the drone and they fit very well.

i like them as well i chose them because they dont put any stress on the arms when landing ,i filed a little bit off the lugs that lock in the drone ,as i have a skin on mine and it was damaging the edge of the skin as i took it on and off

I think you must be one of the first to attach these - thanks for the tip re the skin.

I'm also pleased to have spent time on the CAA site some minutes ago and passed the test.

I like that attachment too; I've decided against the leg extensions. I'm working on a 3D printed thing that attaches to the body like that but uses piano wire for the struts and skids -- very light weight and hardly any added wind drag, and maybe a little cushioning for hard landings.

Good choice. Adding additional front length to the landing legs will increase leaverage, and torsional force. The legs could break more easily.

Why not handlaunch and handcatch. It's so easy, especially if you put the Drone in C mode when landing.
I've yet to take off from, or land on the ground...don't need extensions on my hands. Of course, YMMV.
