I am trying to raise money for flight training and doing so i am selling pvc airplane stands and airplane wall mounts.

Stand-The stand is strong and durable and break apart easily for transporting around. It also makes it 10x easier to work on your plane when needed. Also it can hold up 20 lb. plane! It can hold most size planes.

I am selling them for $18+ shipping anywhere in the USA.

Why this stand? This stand breaks apart for transporting and takes no space up in your car!

Wall Mount- The wall mount makes it easier to store your planes and doesnt take up to much space. It also gives you more space to work on your planes. They are easy to install because they just drill right into your wall.

UPDATED WALL MOUNT INFO!- The wall mount comes in 2 different versions: a flying wing version and a normal plane version. It also has several special features!

Wall mount prices vary depending on the size.

I know they are easy to make but like I said I am trying to raise money for flight training.

If you would like one you can email me at Hbdouglas@aol.com or you can send me a pm.

Thanks,
Douglas (hbsurfer)

So i met this guy at my local flying field one day and he saw me fly my taylorcraft and thought i was pretty good i guess. So he says to me, "Hey i have a plane that i dont fly because i am a scale guy." So were talking about it and hes telling me about it and he says, "Oh ya you can have it it you want." I am just like no way a free plane . So he says stop by my house and you can check it out. So i go by there and see it and i was on cloud 9. Once again hes telling me about and asking how much money i am willing to put into it. And at this point im thinking not to much because im only 15 and i dont have that much. So i say to him, "Well if you have all the parts and stuff i am willing to buy them off you and pay you to put them in." (he has parts laying all over his house by the way.. Hes is an airplane hoarder basically but it was awesome!!) So he says to me, "Ya thats fine." And i am like yes!! So he installed a motor a speed control and gave me a battery for $150 . And this stuff is not cheap stuff that he is putting in there!! (Look at the list below on what was installed) So yesterday i go and pick it up and the plane was sitting there with the motor installed and the esc and once again i am in HEAVEN!!And so i brought it home and i took it back to his house today so he can balance it all out .. NOW I JUST CANNOT WAIT TO FLY IT!!!!

List of Parts that were installed:
  • AXI 4120 Motor
  • Jeti 80 amp ESC
  • Zippy 3600mah 25C battery x2

(That right there is well over $150)

So in other words i think i got a pretty good deal!!

Couple weeks ago i picked up an E-Flite Taylorcraft from Nicoyenny for a superb deal. I love the way it flies and the way it looks. Even though i tore the landing gear out on the first flight i put it right back in and now i cannot wait to fly it!!

Well Today I went and picked up my multiplex magister from Dana Pt. Dave here on rcgroups. When i went and picked it up the box was in perfect condition. My thoughts were the box was going to be old and the plane was going to have some damage but NO. Nothing was wrong with the plane and there wasn't one imperfection and i was the happiest kid alive! So when i got home i immediately started assembling the plane and man this plane was BIG!!! It was no joke!!! So as the plane came along it started to look better and bigger. Along the way i had some trouble installing a few things but overall it was a breeze (besides the decals those were a pain in the ). So anyways when i finished assembling the plane i wanted to go fly it. But it is far to windy here right now and plus i need a receiver. Well i can wait to go and maiden it and i hope she flies as good as they say.

(I provided some pictures of the build)

Thanks again to Dave or Dana pt. Dave for selling me the plane!!!!!!!
