WOW!!! No exaggeration - WOW. The cube folds into a nylon carrier that is about as big as a serving platter and on inch thick. Upon removal, thie cube pops open with little help and once fully extended, stands on its own, just like the pictures show. I have been an outdoorsman for forty years and am quite familiar with tents, sewn gear, poles/wands, etc. The Graupner cube has both superior design and quality construction. The sewn-in wire wands hold the cube in shape very well, even without the stakes and guy lines provided. Four stakes hold the bottom panel to the ground and four guy lines with stakes help to hold the cube more steady. Those guy lines are my only issue with the cube. Fully deployed, they become an obstacle to flying closely around the cube. They are not needed for single cube applications, especially if the bottom is staked out. But, I can see the use of the guy lines when stacking these cubes to make a tower. The rods included do very well at joining the cubes at the corners when stacking them. Nice and stable!! Just absolutely tons of fun and great, quickly assembled stuff for either LOS or FPV flying.
