I'm looking for a case for my HeliArtist 450 size'd 500D heli.
I have several EXI 450 sized cases but they are not deep enough for the height of the 500D fuse.
Any suggestions?
Has anyone ever built their own case out of lightweight materials?

I have one. I can measure it for you if that would help.

It not aluminum, but I saw a vendor at the NEAT Fair who had cases made from corrugated plastic (correx). Not much help at the moment however; I'm trying to find the info. I've thought of making a few of my own and line them with foam.

That 500 case is a bit pricey.

I like that corregated plastic. I wonder if I could use that or some foam board. I have some of that foam board stuff at work.
One of my ideas was to use a hockey bag from hockeygiant.
I need to order some hockey gear from them anyway.
I could use the foamboard or corregated plastic to hold the shape on the inside.

they have other bags (including roller ones) on special right now.

Same idea as the Wingtote, they have fiberboard around the inside. Hockey bag is a good idea because that 500D fuse makes for a tall bird - no?

IMHO, this is a safer, stronger, easier, cheaper, option.

I don't like soft bags.

MMIKE,
I would reinforce any soft bag but. That's a cool idea to use a tool box. I'll have to take measurements again and check out the local hardware stores.

Walmart type stores seem to have plenty of these in all sizes.

Very inexpensive.
