My Storage and Transport Racks
 
13 Attachment(s)
Just finished making a new set of storage racks for my FMS Birds and a transport rack for my pickup from and idea that "Sundancer" did and got his idea from "MRFASTPHILL" http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=236107 who did the origional concept design. I like "Sundancer" http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1323713 also expanded on it and did a few tweeks and additions of my own to mine, to suit my wants better.

The extra 2 wing cradels aren't shown in these pictures as well as the extra fuselage support. In it's current configuration it's rigged to carry 5 planes.

Most of the origional measurements I got from Gary "Sundancer" and then stretched them a bit, with the addition of the third trap piece in the middle, which fits perfectly in the back of my 97 Chevy Silverado 3/4 ton. I did a road test with it today fully loaded at speeds up to 65 mph on the freeway, and like Gary posted on his blog with his...it handled it with no problems at all, and everything stayed nice and secured. :)

Yea they can, but its easier to get them in and out the way I have them in it right now....its still a work in progress. When they are full assembled and in the rack, I have to disassemble it to get them out, but I'm still working on ideas for that...I just needed something quick to put them in for now, since I didn't want to hang them from the ceiling.

I just got into RC 6 months ago and the collection keep getting bigger.
I saw you post and know at that moment that your PVC idea was for me to.
My son and I made these truck racks for my main unit I fly at the fling field.
I have seen many people that have used PVC for this peruse, some call PVC the tinker toys for hobbies.
Thanks for the post it was just what I was looking for.

Thanks again !!!

Hello,
This looks a really excellent stand.

Could you recommend what sort of clear lacquer to use to finish?

Thanks for any help
