Gear Jack Tail Supports — What they do for you.

Gear Jack Tail Supports are a fast, efficient way to secure the tail of many types of RC airplanes. Placed under the fuselage, they 'cradle' the tail and keep the tail wheel off the ground — preventing damage to the tail wheel and strut. With a Gear Jack Tail support you can lock down the tail and know that you'll arrive at the field without damage to tail wheel or control surfaces.

Because they're so easy to adjust, guys are also using Tail Supports as part of a work/adjustment stand. With the Tail Support raised to set the airplane fuselage perfectly level, fine adjustments like wing incidence can be made quickly and confidently.

And to quickly secure your tail to the Tail Support without damage, you might want to add a custom bungee to your Gear Jack setup. With Random Heli's Build-A-Bungee Kit you can make a bungee for the tail that is the perfect length and strength.

Useful Features:

  • Four degrees of freedom make it easy to support different fuselage types, shapes, and sizes.
  • Padded Tail Support Plate adds 'cushion' and protects delicate fuselage surfaces.
  • Tail Support Plate can be bent to better conform to fuselage shape.
  • Fits perfectly on Gladiator® Gear Track — one set up can accommodate many different airplanes.
  • Reconfigure your Gear Jacks in just minutes when you need to secure a different airplane.

Kit (assembly required) Includes:

  • 3" high, low profile powder-coated aluminum Stanchion Bracket — fits better under fuselage tail.
  • Standard length 6" Lifting Tube.
  • Tail Support Bracket with 2" wide, ¾" thick closed cell foam pad.
  • Rust and corrosion resistant hardware.

5 of 5 Gear Jack Tail Support - Low Profile September 23, 2018
Reviewer: Chewy from NSW Australia  
Love this product. Used with the soft strap kits, its such an easy way to set up a support for the tail section of my warbirds and goes a long way to eliminating the hangar rash that sometimes happens in transport. Service and support from Ray and his team is fantastic. Thoroughly recommend using them for your plane transport solutions.
