If you’re anything like me you have had plenty of frustrations dealing with crappy flightstands on models. I may have found a solution!
Flightstands are fragile and often break or don’t attach to the model well. For many of us they are an after-thought until that beautifully painted Cruiser/Jetbike/Landspeeder takes a bump and breaks its stand during play or transport. To address these grievances, Corsec Engineering gives us the Omni-Stand System, and I’d like to tell you all about it.

Now that all sounds pretty simple, but the genius of the “system” is that all components go together and come apart easily. Simple hand tightening (and it doesn’t take much) will securely assemble or disassemble stands. This allows for easy storage and transport, as the loose components take up very little room. You will also notice how securely the model keeps its orientation on the stand, but can still be unscrewed with little effort. This is all due to the use of the O-ring I mentioned earlier. The O-ring compresses as the threads are tightened. This snugs the model to the peg and the peg to the bas,e bearing the friction that holds the whole thing in place. This saves wear and tear on the threads which by themselves would take much more effort to tighten, putting at risk the model and eventually the threads.
Well that’s about it. I hope this review answered any lingering questions you may have had about this product. I would like to say thank you to Jonathan B. over a Corsec for his patience and for the opportunity to examine this great product. Please don’t hesitate to go by and check out CorsecEngineering’s full product line, including the Omni-Stand system. Peace!
