Robert, Tim over in S. Carolina may have the exact folding stand you are looking for. You can find it in the Buy and Sell section here on RCU. Look under the Airplanes/pattern section. I've seen this unit and based on long term use, it is worth the money! Regards, Everette

Cut to fit. Use pvc pipe insulation and duct tape. So cheap you can get one for every plane in your hangar.

Jarvis,

Nice of you to notice...yes, I drew the first stand and made myself one, but I am not in the stand building business and although the plans are free, Ed Valls builds an exquisite version of what I originally drew up a while back. He was very kind in asking for my permission before making these available, although he didn't have to. I know he and Bryan tweaked the stand here there, making a nice stand even better. If you are so inclined though, build away from the free plans, but be warned, Ed and Bryan's version is hard to beat!


Best Regards,
Mark
