Default Anyone use Gear Jacks for plane transportation?

These look like a good way to secure a plane for a long trip, if anyone has used them or seen them in use I would appreciate your input

They loocks good, but realy expensive.

I got hocks in rear in my car, I just put a strap frome the hooks truoght the wing tube hole in the fuselage and back oround the tail wheel. Holds the model fine under hard braking and cost almost nothing.

I’ve been using them for the last several years in my trailer of giant scale planes. They are expensive but very robust and you avoid damaging wheel pants using bungee cords etc. The support struts are 1/2” conduit so you can easily cut different lengths for various plane heights. The only negative I’ve found is when you have cub gear which is not easily fastened to these holders.

Thank You! Yes thy are expensive but I figured I buy one set one time for a plane, they should last years

I just got mine in and put together, looks nice. I am planning on keeping a plane in my car in case I get a chance to fly after work, this will keep the plane very secure
