FLIGHT DECK FEATURES
Flight Deck is the only R/C Plane Work Stand with an integrated CG system, and the only CG Testing Machine with an integrated work stand.
The CrewZinn Flight Deck RC Airplane Work Stand and Center of Gravity Tester is the result of years of real world product testing. It is designed to work with the largest variety of radio control aircraft possible and incorporates a level of usability not found in any other R/C work stand or radio controlled airplane center of gravity measurement tool on the market.
Beautiful laser cut brushed aluminum support plates & solid maple cross members:
All Stainless Steel hardware:
Two unique cradle profiles to easily accommodate a wide variety of fuselage sizes and profiles. Cradles are made of durable EPDM rubber. This material is firm but compliant and will securely grip your plane without damaging the delicate materials commonly used in RC plane construction.
Convenient built-in magnet to keep small hardware from disappearing
On-board storage for CG measurement sticks:
Super grippy feet insure that your stand stays right where you want it:
Mounting holes for securing devices such as bungee cords or rubber bands (not included):
The top cross member can be relocated to a lower position in the event that more clearance is required for a given airplane.
Our unique radio controlled airplane center of gravity measurement system is built right into FLIGHT DECK. The system is designed to be extremely versatile, and provides quick, accurate CG testing for everything from Micro planes to planes with 1700mm wingspans and larger... Any place. Any time.
EPDM rubber pads are mounted atop strong and true carbon fiber tubes. The pads are firm enough to be extremely accurate but soft enough to conform to dihedral and surface variations, to clearly indicate balance/imbalance and to not damage the surface of your wing. (Optional Extended CG Sticks include reinforced pads for use with larger, heavier aircraft).
The standard pads are easily removed to access a smaller pad for extremely precise CG measurement and/or very small aircraft. (Optional Extended CG Sticks include reinforced pads for use with larger, heavier aircraft).
CG stickers make testing your center of gravity quick and easy on the work bench or in the field. CG stickers are made of thick, durable, UV stable clear vinyl and are designed to appear as a natural part of any plane’s livery. They are scaled perfectly for your CG system allowing for quick, easy alignment every time. No more unsightly Sharpie marks or dents and discoloration from repeated CG testing. Every FLIGHT DECK comes with 6 CG stickers and additional CG sticker packs are available separately.
CG stickers are designed to work on any color surface. Simply rotate the sticker appropriately for easy CG testing depending on the background color on which they will be applied. They even work perfectly in areas where installation requires that contrasting background colors split the sticker.
Planes from Micro to very large can be accommodated with the large number of CG system mounting widths afforded by FLIGHT DECK. Measurement points can be set to 3”, 6”, 7”, 9”, 10”, 13”, and 16” to accommodate almost any aircraft up to 1700mm wingspans and greater.

We worked with many different variations of the Flight Deck Work Stand & CG Tester in the field over the course of several years before committing to commercial production. The dimensions and profiles of the stand are the result of all of that real world experience and represent our best configuration for the widest variety of R/C aircraft possible. P-38's and a various jets presented unique challenges because of features like non-traditional fuselages and delta wings but, in most cases, the current Flight Deck configuration will accommodate most that we've worked with. If you find that something doesn't work well with your aircraft please contact us and share your experience. We always strive to continue to improve our product based on the real world experience of our customers. And, as always, we want you to be happy with your purchase and will do everything in our power to ensure your Flight Deck experience is outstanding.
