Once you figure this contraption out, it’s a keeper! With one tool, you’re locking your elevators, ailerons, and rudder. I figured it was worth the price.

Just started using this but really impressed so far. Allows for only slight movement of all controls but holds very firm after that. interested to see how it holds up through all kinds of weather. Also like how small it folds up when not in use.
