Default Restraints for R/C Aircraft

Hey Guys,
I have designed a restraint for R/C planes that is the shape of a football goal post, made entirely of 3/4" square steel tubing,(thick wall) with foam covering the two uprights. Choice of two colors, yellow or white. The uprights are 12" high, spaced 10" apart, and the ground spike is 12" long. I am going to build a few of these and I will sell them for $16.00 + Shipping.
If anyone is interested, leave a post here and I will get a pic on here for you to see.

I have looked for something at the LHS, but no one had any. Tower has one, but I don't think it is as sturdy.

Thanks, Keith

Default Plane restraint

Hey Rudy,
The restraint I have built does not fold down, It simply sticks in the ground, with the two uprights visible. It is pretty compact when not in use, and can be stored flat or hung up when not in use.

Thanks,
Keith

Default Pics coming soon

I will post some pics of the plane restraint as soon as I can get outside to get enough light to take a good pic.
It has been snowing and overcast the last couple of days here.

Thanks,

Default RE: Aircraft Restraints

Looks amazingly similar to the "Midwest Aero-Mate Starting Stand" sold by Tower Hobbies.
