Wall mount for my helicopters
last updated 12-31-2010

This is a wall mount I made to get my helis off the floor. I do not have any measurements listed because this is custom. I measured the landing gear and height of each helicopter to figure out where to place the arms. This is here just to give you an idea for one way to do it. I went to the hardware store and found the hinges. The post and hinges are aligned so that when they fold together one is directly on top of the other. When the heli is in place, the front skid hook under the upper post and the rear skids are on top of the lower post. Also you see I notched the post and used a hook to keep the rear strut squeezed a litttle. This prevents the strut from losing its shape as it sits waiting to be flown.
