I wanted everyone to see the lift hooks I installed on a 750
Not made from any plans ,and I didn't do any engineering on the material thickness , I just knew I wanted I thinker than the material in the upper spar carry though . I figure if it was thicker than that I would be more than enough
You wouldn't need then that often , but they would be handy

I just bent up some 1/8 4130 around the with of the front spar attachment point on the fuse and bought a forged eyelet from a local hardware store . In the pics you can see that I made a flat pice of aluminum to go under the nut , I didn't like the nut just hitting a few points on the steel bracket without that and I cut holes in the wing root fairing . The bracket is installed with the wings ,it's kind of a pain to get the nut installed inside the u bracket I put a jam nut on top ,I have not lifted the airplane up on those yet but I plan on supporting the tail also while I lift Hope it helps
