Well Im back in TX from NJ and I would like to take home my helicopter with me. My question is, how do I bring it home and where can I find something that I can carry it in??? I know that there is the $150 curtis youngblood suitcase but it is way to expensive!!

You're probably better off shipping it rather than try to carry it onboard an airliner.

No matter which approach you take, you'll have to at least partially disassemble the heli and pack the parts well.

NTXEVO,

You can get a LARGE ice chest, place the heli in it (you might have to remove the tail boom, depending on the size of your ice chest) and put styrofoam peanuts around it. Pack it real good! Then use duct tape to tape the ice chest up. When the airport ask you what is inside, just say a toy helicopter. Make SURE all of the fuel is drained out, just incase they want you to open the ice chest.

Good Luck!

Mike
