Default Displaying Helis

How are you guys displaying your scale helis? Do you put it on a glass shelf?

I am trying to figure out how I can display my helis without taking up too much space.

I only own one heli, but I take the blades off and cover it with a thin cotton sheet to keep the dust off it

Our scale helis look soo good and we put a lot of time into it + money. We should proudly display it in the house I feel.

I totally agree, just in my case having 2 x 8 foot long smelly kerosene smelling turbine lumps in my lounge would cause a fracas with my mrs to give you an idea .

Lol. That sounds like me. The reason I get away with that at my house is because I've been divorced for 10+ years.

Surprised this option hasn't been mentioned, takes up almost no useable space and looks good at the same time.



Just make sure you screw your anchors for anything over a mini into a ceiling rafter/stud.
