How do you keep your jets at home???


Disclaimer: I just purchased my first turbine jet (used engine thanks, FishFace and used HSD F-16 thanks, Kim!!!) this is the heaviest plane I have ever owned ( I have been flying since the 1980's). All my other planes, helicopters, and EDF jets are hanging from my ceiling so my question is how do you store your jets? Pictures are welcome... PS... I don't have a trailer... Thanks...

Congrats on the jet. Have fun and don't fly unless you are with a pilot that has a waiver (since you are new I did not know if you knew that).

Anyway, you can use a stand of some sort and don't need to have a table but some flat surface will help. The bonus is that you can transport them on the same stands.

Virtually all of my flying planes get hung from the ceiling, including my turbines. The only exception is my T-one because I like keeping the wings and tail in the bag. For the T-one I bought some ladder hooks from Home Depot and mounted them to my wall/closet.
