I like your methodology, bigblueswope for both wings and fuselages. Very practical, relatively inexpensive, but effective.

Hanging from the wall by the gear as BigBlue has done is great for the samller planes and allows the clunk line to hang freely in the tank without bending over and possibly getting stuck in a bad position. I installed a pulley system and made padded hangers thet support the planes under the wings, simply set plane on floor, slide hanger under wings and hoist it up to the ceiling. A simple winch set up or a loop on a hook holds them in place til next flying session. I fly from my own yard so I don't often have to disassemble my planes for transport.

Yep, I'm the one who keeps pestering you on your build/fly thread over in the 3D Fun Fly forum.

I just ordered, what I hope are, all the parts to build it out. Going to slap a DLE 55 on the nose, per your recommendation that the DLE 35 is just a hair less power than you'd prefer.

Taking some suggestions here, I did a little trial mounting of some airplanes, using pegboard brackets from WalMart. They cost me under $2 for a set of 4, enough for 2 planes a set.
