Hanging a new plane


After hanging a new plane, I feel like a mother hen checking on her chicks. Will the 3M hooks hold? Each hook is rated at 3 lbs. apiece.

Each 3M hook has thick, soft yarn attached to it. This system costs about $5.00 per plane. Note that I put a pillow below my Ford Flivver and foam guards around the dummy engine cylinders.

The yellow plane is a PZ Sport Cub S2. It has been hanging that way for a year. It weighs two pounds. The Ford Flivver, without battery, weighs about 3 pounds.m

These planes hang in the corner of my garage waiting for the weather to break. They’re exposed to below freezing temps and heat in the 100s with no ill effects so far.
