Default Foam for Skids?

Where do most folks get the bright color foam tubes that I've seen on the landing skids? I know it's to help dampen vibration but the bright colors help orientation in the air. I've looked at normal pool "noodles" but they seem to be WAY too fat. Thanks!

Most local shops don't carry them in the winter so you might have to go online. In spring, you should be able to find them everywhere, Target, Walmart and pool supply stores. I got some small ones (2.5" dia.) at Target.

That's what I'm looking for! But the only ones I find are about 6" in diameter!

Some of those dollar stores and in the spring others have various sizes. Probably find em online for next to nothing.
Pipe insulation works for the stealthy low profile look.
