This is a tray for holding and RC radio for those who are flying enthusiasts with airplanes and helicopters. This works best for those who use the ‘pinch’ method of holding the control sticks.

I got this idea from another on YouTube and modified it to fit my radio.

Made of a scrap piece of 1/4” plyw and about $7 hardware from Lowes. You can buy these commercially online for about $40 and up.

Nicely done! Your little tray should make things more comfortable while you having fun flying your toys!
I flew light duty electrics for about 10 years. Tiger Moth’s mostly, it’s a blast!
Nice work on your tray!

I am an R/C enthusiast as well but prefer land vehicles. That is a nice looking set-up! I have always wanted to try flying but haven’t been serious enough about it to try. Nice work!

My son does cars, airplanes , and helicopters. He’s better than I. His cars are quite fast. I’ve seen some quite extensive dirt tracks for cars. Competition style.

Cars use a different radio style.

Aircraft are easy to get into cheaply, and graduate if the interest develops.

I had a car, Radio Shack style. Don’t have it anymore. Would be good if I had a track to go to.
