Home made 120SR budget travel case
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was traveling a lot last summer and I hated having to take the heli in it's box, and also having to find a safe way to take along my Tx (I use the LP5DSM and it doesn't fit in the BnF box) and a charger/power supply.
I'd love to buy a nice metal travel case for it, but I'm on a pretty tight budget right now and those funds could be used for parts. I've held on to the box it came in when I bought it, so I thought I'd see what I could do. With some good old guess & check measuring and cutting I was able to modify my original box to hold:
Heli (with tail boom braces)
Charger (same size as Acucell 6)
The box already had spots for 4 batteries and the top of the lid nicely holds a couple spare tail booms and small bag of misc. parts, along with the manual.
