PRODUCT REVIEW: RC PLANE STANDS BENCHTOP MODEL
Model Airplane News|January 2022
I’m a sucker for shop stuff. I buy tools I will probably never use just because they are cool, or I might need to use them someday. When Glen from RC Plane Stands reached out about a review, however, I knew as soon as I browsed their website that I would be receiving something I would use a lot, maybe even daily.

PRODUCT REVIEW: RC PLANE STANDS BENCHTOP MODEL

RC Plane Stands picked up the manufacturing void left when my good buddy Gene Levine stopped making his floor stands. Glen took his basic design and added a few personal improvements and now offers the original floor stand as well as the benchtop stand. I already have a floor stand, but I’ve been dying for a quality benchtop stand to do minor projects in the house as well as flying field setup on my jets. Fortunately, Glen manufactures just such a stand, and I was excited to receive one for review.
