Building a PVC plane rack


It has gotten to the point where I have enough RC planes now that storage is becoming an issue. Too many times I've had a plane laying on the ground waiting to be stepped on or knocked over. I finally got motivated enough to build my own PVC pipe rc plane rack. There are lots of different ways to make these, so the biggest thing is to just make it work for you and whatever you're storing. I chose to make a wall hanging rack since I don't have a lot of floor place to hold a stand.

Check out more pictures and build details of the pvc plane rack here!

Sure I'd think it's "possible" however it may be quite heavy once you're finished depending on the design. Foam and Balsa are just so much lighter than thick plastic pvc.
