Howdy folks. I have been searching for the right wall mount for a while. I have about 9 Twisted Hobby's planes. I want to hang for or 5 of them from their prop, on a wall mount.It cant be hung from the ceiling because I have vaulted ceilings in the room I want to hang them from. So I need something that mounts to the wall, then a shaft that comes out far enough so the plane does not hit the wall on angle when hanging, and of course, the shay should end in a U or Y do it can grab the prop area. I have not really found anything that matches what I need. I saw a few possibilities on Thingverse, but couldn't be sure. So if anyone here has the skills to design them, I would gladly buys them from you, and we can discuss the details. Let me know if anyone can and is willing to work with me on this. Thanks a ton in advance.

You would almost have to build a proto type even if it is out of plywood or something just to get some specs, eg distance from wall does the U have to be, how much distance between the prop and cowl so the U can fit in, how do you want to mount it to the wall (screws)? and so on. If I had one of those planes it would be different trying to design something but I don't

Why not just bend some wire? I've had great success bending some pushrods to hold a prop. Then I just bend a u-shape on the other side and hammer a nail into the wall.. you could surely adapt it to fit your mounting habits.
Build it, fly it, crash it, build another.

Mainly because I want the mount to look nice, as they are being hung on a blank (no decorations currently hung on it) wall in our Great Room. The TH planes look sharp, my plane rack is full, and my wife actually suggested hanging them on the wall. Who am I to say no, .

The TH Planes are just 32" EPP profile planes, with prop on the front. Pretty standard.

I'll do a mockup once I'm back home, You can also mount them on the landing gear if your planes have some. That way the mount is hidden behind the planes
