Great alternative to a cement filled tail-stand. Making this a portable unit.

Great tail stand. Quite sturdy. Will work with a lot of aircraft. The only drawback is the shipping cost. It was $144, Almost 1/2 the cost of the stand. If I would have know that the shipping was so expensive I think I would have gone to a welding shop and have them fabricate one for me.

It’s outstanding. Shipping was quick, though the 10” gash from it shifting around and the loosely roaming center bolt made for some suspense in locating it and wondering if it was lost. Holds the tail solidly, no movement and allows me to get into the plane for work while the engine is removed.
