I've seen these in pictures, and have always loved them.

But have always wondered, what keeps the legs from just falling open when you pick it up from inside your vehicle? How do you get it from the ground when it's standing, and get the legs closed with everything in it, and into your vehicle? And what keeps the fuselage brackets on top, from just flopping down?

To answer your questions, the fuselage brackets on top are stationery. The legs have a mechanism on them that clicks them into place, so once they're popped out, they stay in place. The same goes for when they're folded; however, they fold very effortlessly. It would be possible to pick up the box with one hand and fold the legs under with the other.

Glad to hear this! We have been holding on to it for years because it was too sentimental to let go. We're at the point of needing space, so we're turning it loose Hope it can bring happiness to someone!

Although I appreciate your comment, I've seen one sell for$300 recently, and one sold for $250. This cost $120 when it was purchased 25 years ago, so we felt this was a fair asking price.

Wow, thanks for the info! We were trying to remember how much this cost originally, and I think we must have low-balled it! This one is really in mint condition and, unfortunately, never was used. My precious father-in-law passed away before he got the chance. We haven't been able to part with it until now. We're planning on moving soon and have to let some of these things go.

Get airborne !
They were sold and made by Mr. Geron who lived in McArthur California, I still own one and have the original sales brochure that was included with the box. Beautiful finish and still looks like new back in 89 it was 119.95 plus shipping. They were finished with Pactra Formula U so are fuel proof and durable . Wood is maple and birch plywood.
