Default TRANSPORTING LARGE PLANES

I came up with this recently. all you need is a descent bit of foam, and your away, will work with most planes.
Ive done 100mph with the cub on top !

He's from NZ. I don't know about the 100mph bit as nothing go fast over there, but the idea certainly looks like somehing only a Kiwi would come up with

Don't they drive backwards down there? That's impressive!

That will be used to clamp down the parts that get knocked off after the bird hits it!

I use my Ford Excursion. I put the 140cc Edge 540 in the back with the seats down. Could probably fit up to a 200cc plane. Otherwise I could an enclosed trailer would work well. Make like a portable shop for the planes with chargers and batteries. 

Thats when I win the lottery.

It can be as expensive or as cheap as you like. You can pick up a small trailer and build a box that fits on it for under $1000 CAD if you buy used. My dad farmed for 30 years and we were able to build a 7X14 trailer and all we needed to buy was the wiring harness for the lights and the fenders. The rest we made ourselves from material he had around the yard.. I am building a box to go on it that will store all my planes. I have 2 50CC planes and 6 smaller ones. It will be 2 levels high. The biguns go on the bottom and the little ones on the top layer. I'm running a seperate 12V hookup for inside it so the planes can be charged while in the trailer. The best part is that the box will slide off the trailer and i can use it to haul my quad or sled.... and then i have a place to store my planes as well...

I wonder if he uses rudder in corners to ensure his turns are coordinated?

Never been to New Zealand to know that there are Kiwi Rednecks down there.
Idea probably works well, just not pretty sight for your $3000 planes.
I agree that the C clamp is overkill. You "overbuilt" the rig.
