Default STARTING STAND FOR A NO WHEEL PLANE

I know the SIG Wonder is not an Extreme Speed Plane but its design is similar to some that are. I found it unhandy to try to hold and start it and then pick it up for launch. I built a simple starting stand that can be clamped to the edge of a table. After starting, just remove the plane from the stand/holder and go. Now I can start and launch it safely by myself.

That's a handy little stand you've made up there, good idea to post it here.

Alternatively, use a fruit cardboard box with 2 cut outs for the front and back of the plane. That works well, I seen them use on up to 40 sized planes. Cheap and folds flat!
