My Storage and Transport Racks

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.
