How to Store an Engine

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello Engine Guru's: I recently moved from a house to a smaller apartment and I have a severe space problem. I am forced to store my model airplanes in a vertical configuration such that the entire weight of the airplane is placed on the spinner/crankshaft. Even though I have seen modelers do this in the past, I never really liked the idea of puting those loads on the crankshaft/bearings for prolonged periods of time. My models are all 60 sized. Any opinions on this?

no problem

my oppinion is that it wont do anything to your bearings I would only worry about it if your plane weighed over 200 pounds. (yeah right)
there isnt enough weight there to do any dammage .
ive never even heard of problems from hanging from a prop too long before . so>>
in my oppinion dont worry about it dude.
