Plane Storage Racks…What to Use


With more than 6 planes, I’m looking to get them off of the floor, perhaps get some type of rack or shelving system.

Does anybody have some suggestions?

A picture tells a thousand words - adjustable shelving.

Cheers

Nice solution. However, I'm an e-flyer. Can't typically take the wings off of the plane.

Thanks.

Heres my solution for my dorm room. I have a wire running from a post in the middle of the room to the wall, I use transmitter neck straps and put them around the planes in assorted ways. The bipe is my Baronette Bipe, and the other is my Champion that had to be recovered after my roommate cracked the wing. I also hang my E3D up there too. Theres room for it.

I leave my wings on my planes too. Here's what I do. Not elaborate, but works.

I bought a box of eye screws from Home Depot, screwed them into the studs in my garage ceiling, and then used strings to hang my planes.

Two eye-screws per plane, and hang them from the nose and tail sections. Works great. I also put one eye-screw into the wall, and use a bungee cord wrapped around the tail and hooked back into the eye-screw for three of my warbirds.

The first picture - adjustable shelving - works with wings on also.
Just cover the arms with the gray pipe insulation foam so the metal bracket does not hurt the plane.
If wheelless, lay on side of fuse with wings vertical and rudder sticking out. Or angle with nose down and out.
