Heres one I bought long ago. Dont waste your money. Its easyer to use your fingers. Its a cg balanceing thing. If you really need to be presise, stick the sharp end of two pencils into foam. Set the plane on the eracer ends. Spend your money on something else.

Scored this at Hobby Lobby. 6 bucks. Modifyied it to clear a spinner and pull out a prop while winding. Handy as a pocket on a shirt. Has a counter. I got mine with a plane for i think 10 dollars. Got them awile back and never flew it. Crazy thing flyies GREAT.  Goes thru batteryies quick but I use rechargables.
