Default Carrying bag for CX2

I'm still carrying my CX2 in the original box but I know it can't last forever and doesn't have room for spare parts . Do most of you carry your CX2 in a heli bag? If so, can someone recommend one for the CX2?

I've got the cpp, but the bag I use is the micro wingaman's heli tote. You can find it on tower for around 40 bucks =) It's very well built and is a really nice box impo. It's probably a bit big for the cx2, but if you ever upgrade, or have a bunch of stuff to carry around it should work out for ya =)

I used a plastic WorkForce toolbox from Home Depot (around $15).
The top compartments hold: charger & AC adapter, batteries, sm. spare parts, tools.
I used the bottom half of the styrofoam from the original box. Had to cut the length to fit in the bottom of the tool box.
CX2 and Tx fit in the way they were shipped. Made minor cuts for the CF tailboom.
There's room for spare blades and flybars, too.
Works for me. [sm=teeth_smile.gif]

Yup. The styrofoam bottom fits in tightly but because of the way it is shaped there are pockets between it and the inside of the toolbox. That's where I keep blade packages.

Mr Packing,
Nice thought, but I don't think that could possibly work.

How about the [link=http://www.fosterawning.com/heli-tote.com.htm]Heli-Tote[/link]

You use your existing foam from the original package.




All for $15

A 4.99 roll of duct tape and I reinforced the original box, and picked up some velcro at the dollar store (my favorite place to shop). and put the velcro on so that it doesn't open up when bouncing around in my trunk. Works for me since I'm planning on upgrading to a 400 series soon.

This works pretty well for me, and has lots of room for extra bodies and parts. Stanley 24" Series 2000. Bought it at either Lowes or Home Depot.
