...it gives us a reason to live life and we have to hope there is a reason to it all and that our loved ones are somewhere better than here.
How true!
I'll be happy as long as i don't come back as a Blade CX
LOL!
but just maybe the reason why you have kids is from sitting in a sports car listening to AC/DC
Nah, at that time, I couldve been thrown in jail if I had done that! (or shot by a 12 gauge!)

Back to the topic:
How would you recommend carrying all this equipment?
Are you talking about transporting the equipment to a job or moving it around on the jobsite?

I am wanting to be able to park the car and carry the equipment to a remote site for a shot without having to carry by hand 15 different items.

I have looked at a framed backpack and think that might be the way to go but I wanted to get others input before spending $150 hoping that it will work. Example is the golf bag, I wouldn't have thought of that and that might work.

Cheers!

Not sure if you have an assistant, but in our case, we have the heli, mount (camera attached), tripod with monitor, and 2 transmitters. I usually carry the heli and mount while my wife carries the tripod and both transmitters.

I have to admit the deltoids get fatigued rather quickly with just 10-15 pounds!

Don't want to hijack this but what are poeple using to haul bigger helis? I looked at some of those golf cases this weekend and theres no way I could fit the bergen even without the canopy...think I would need to pull the head off for it to fit. It would be nice to buy something that would fit it but right now it looks like I will be building my own case.

26' TPD Trailer. Designed specifically (by the master himself, PK) for hauling the "larger" helicopters to offsite locations.
