1) How are the rods driven into the ground?

Answer: The rods are driven into the ground using a hammer (not included). A standard 16 oz. claw hammer that one would buy in any hardware store works well to pound them into the ground. Some pilots prefer the ax/hammer combination when flying into the backcountry to go camping.

2) How much do they weigh?

Answer: The Flytie kit weights only 7 lbs. 10 oz.

3) How long does it take to ship?

Answer: FlyTies are shipped by UPS Ground unless otherwise instructed. They go out usually the next day. Depending on where you live from the west coast, the shipment takes 4-5 working days.

4) How much will they hold? How strong are they?

Answer: Although the holding strength varies a great deal depending on the soil conditions, soil saturation, maximum wind gusts, etc., FlyTies Company has done extensive testing on our products. Our tie downs for aircraft (3/8 x 14" rods) will hold over 1,200 lbs Ea. (3,600 lbs collectively) in most conditions.

5) What is the hub made out of?

Answer: The hub is machined out of high strength aluminum.  It is then powder coated to assure a corrision resistant finish.

6) How are FlyTies packaged?

Answer: The complete FlyTie kit comes in a compact canvas tote bag to make it easy to carry. It fits in all aircraft baggage compartments and resists moisture.
