American Hobby Products makes a nice one.

They have three sizes and then there are ones that measure torque and thrust.

No web site They advertise in R/C Modeler

Mail order only.

I have the Jumbo and it was 39.95. I just ran my Saito 150 on it last week but I've also used it with my Saito 100's, 91's etc.

The Jumbo will not fit 46 or smaller size engines.

I have a Carl Goldburg for that. http://www.carlgoldbergproducts.com/stand.htm it's not safe for anything over a 61.

Enjoy,

Jim

I have the PSP brand.
It BY FAR exceedes all others.
Mine is mounted to a 2X6 on top of a metal saw horse.
It has about 4 coats of epoxy and sanded and painted with Kand B Orange.
If you are going to be in this hobby a while buy the best.
You can give it to your grandchildren.
It folds up nicely and lives in the house when I am not using it

For many years (decades) I have used a home made oak test stand. Recently however, I purchased one of the PSP stands and have been highly pleased with it.

You can't go wrong with PSP products. They are by far the best. Remember, you get what you pay for. Buy the best and only cry once.
