What you can cram in the trunk is all for naught if you can't get her started...

I hope Josh doesn't mind me reposting this, but this is my favorite pic on this topic. A 103" Extra in a Honda Fit with the stabs on.

By the way, I finally got my own Honda Fit a few weeks ago and it does do a great job of hauling planes. Although my largest one currently is a 70" Slick, so I have some room to grow.

I can pretty easily get my 88" EF edge in my Yaris, transporting people with it is another problem entirely. Hatchbacks are a RC guys best friend

Now this is a great thread! I get mine into my TL with plenty of room left.
The back seats dont fold down so its not as easy as it should be, but it works.
The tail is on the deck by the speakers. This leaves me plenty of room in the trunk and along the back seat for something smaller.

A buddy of mine get his into a Nissan Sentra!

Next time I go to the field ill try and remeber to take a pic.

Here are a few of my 104 Slick in a Subaru Forester. I now go at an angle and keep the spinner onů.

I don't have pics, but I was able to easily transport my 42% EG Raven in a Ford Expedition.
The elevators had to be removed, but once that was done, the tail sat all the way forward on the center console and the rudder divided the drivers seat from the passenger seat
LOL

it worked though.

Guys I haul my 30 ccer in the back of my PU but the wind knocked my rudder and elevator around so much that it wore the hinge pin holes out there by creating some slop in my surfaces.

I can fit two 100cc airplanes in a 2003 Pathfinder with no issues. I do have to pull the stabs off both of them and one wheel pant off but thats it. I'm pretty sure I can get a 52" Freestyle 260 in there too.

Sure beats buying a trailer, license for it, and then storing it. Plus hooking it up every time and getting crummy gas mileage to boot!

I have a chevy traverse which is the same as a enclave 87 extra fits easy. 100cc slick fits with horizontal stabs off. Do it already.
