Men I don’t learn about you, however I am lacking space to securely save my airplane. It’s spilling over to various other spaces, the garage and I just do not believe I can fit anymore aircrafts. The good news is there is a flea market this weekend, so I can attempt and offer some older airplanes I do not fly anymore and also develop some space for brand-new things, however there needs to be an extra effective method to store these airplanes besides a bigger home. I wished to write this article to show how I have my planes presently set up and to get you included and display your best tips, tricks as well as storage systems for your airplane. Please respond listed below with your comments and also images and also ideally this helps out various other customers too.

I attempt to use as much wall and ceiling space as feasible. I’ve got purpose built wall mounts, screw in hooks, nails and even more to attempt and also get as several planes up off the ground as well as table as feasible. I actually like the wall mounts with padded arms to rest the plane on as it is safe and very easy to remove and put the airplane back when you intend to fly. I’ve considered utilizing neck bands and eye hooks to hang airplanes by the tail or prop on some wall surfaces which appears to function pretty well as well. I’m curious to see what methods and also systems you men have actually made use of to save area and also hang your planes. Expecting your replies listed below.

Low-cost and also easy DIY RC Storage Rack:

I’ve used plastic shelves prior to, yet they just don’t function as well as I had really hoped. I finally navigated to developing an easy rack that can hold 9 of my RC’s at once.



The total amount is set you back concerning $25-30 and took me a little over a hr to develop.

Only tools you require are a drill as well as some clamps as well as potentially a stud finder as well as tiny t-square.

Components as well as costs.

1x6" x 8' = $6.
2x3" x 8' = $2 (3 of these).
2x4" x 8' = $3.
3 1/2" screws = $8 (box of about 60).
2" screws = $2 (box of 20 approximately).

So while at HD or Lowes, have an employee cut the 2x3" x8' into strips anywhere from 8 to 12" long, your selection.



Also have them reduce 3 or 4 5" pieces out of the 2x4".

When you obtain home, make use of pieces of the 2x3" as overviews by clamping them to the 1x6" x8'. This will certainly guarantee your rack posts will certainly be straight as well as degree.

Drill and also mount 2 screws with the 1x6" into each 2x3" shelf article.

Space them along the 1x6" x8' so your RC’s will fit well. I made use of about 8" as my spacing.

As soon as that’s done, install the 2x4" x5" piece of timber to the wall surface. Try to find a stud. When that is done, install the shelving unit to those items and also you’re done.
