They won't sit up on the skids without the lipos installed

My work table is small so I can walk around the heli 360°

Too small to catch the tail fin.

I get this crap...

Well guys...I say enough!
Enough of this intolerable cruelty inflicted on us by insensitive manufacturers with a total disregard for those of us with smaller tables...Table bigotry ends today!

I present you with the solution.

The Heli Kickstand!

Now your heli will stand up and present itself with pride on even the smallest of table

No more will the heli be yelled at or made fun of for it's sad droopy tail.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Cost of living is really low here.
A three bedroom HOUSE on two or three acres rents for around $400-$600 a month.

Everything else is comparable.

My house is a $200,000 home that would list for $400,000 if I were just 50 miles north.
And probably be worth millions inside city limits.

400-600 is pretty low if thats what it is there. Here is about 900 or more average.
Would love to have some acres to fly on though!

I guess I'm too lazy to get up and walk around my helis.
I just put a battery in them - then I can move them around anyway I want and they don't fall...that way I can stay seated.

That kickstand makes that chopper appear way less wild.. in the first picture, its doing a wheelie.. and thats wild as hell. Heli kickstand you say, Heli anchor I say, who are you to keep that wild ass chopper on its skids like that.. for shame!

I have 100 acres in my back yard, trouble is...it's all trees.

At least I have a flying field about 6 mins. from home - not as convienient as your back yard, but I live close to the city.

Now that the corn is harvested,I have the 10 acre back yard for afternoon flying and 15 acres in front for morning flying.

Gotta keep the sun behind me all day

The corn field isn't mine but the owner doesn't care.
I don't fly over the crops out of respect...Scared to death to cause a fire in the field when the crops are growing.
The owner says go for it but it scares me.

Corn is gone to market though

Sounds like a great setup, and I agree about flying over the corn...no sense messing up a good thing!

Corn is a lot easier on a airframe in a crash though, absorbs most of the impact and minimizes damage

And a lipo fire steals a years income from a family.
