I am in the process of moving, and the new place isn't going to be enough room to store my RC stuff as well. I have been putting my helis and planes in the storage unit, but now I am not sure that they will be safe in the temp. fluctuation and the cold. Is this going to be ok? I know a lot of people store helis in the garage and have no problems, but I just want to make sure that I am not screwing myself later. I figure that if there is no water in the cases (shouldn't be!) that everything should be ok?

Storage
I use lamp style hooks and hang them from the ceiling, I made some 6" long hooks out of 3/16" aluminum rod to hook from my blade grip to the lamp hook.

You're in Utah? I think the cold is probably OK. Batteries are supposed to like cold for storage. You want to protect against condensation, however. I store my TX with a silica gel packet.

I had a lot of my equipment in storage too, and it worked out OK. In Texas the biggest problem in storage is the heat.

Temp fluctuations would be what I worried about. Happens a lot here in FL. Why not hang em on the wall in a room like this?

That way the temps are constant and you don't have to worry about condensation and such........Ron

If at all possible, I would try to at least hang them on the wall like the picture above.

also put the piston at the top of the compression stroke and make sure the carb is fully closed. Keep the air from getting inside the engine.

All good ideas. Thanks fellas. I may sell a few of them but most will be E power helis. Batteries will stay in the house with me. Probably be in storage for a few months at least...
