Hey everybody! I just want to let everybody that I am about to move across the country to go to my dream college Embry Riddle aeronautical university in Daytona Beach florida!!! I am really excited but it has presented a couple problems in moving and my heli collection! Thats where I need your help, what to do with it? Right now I have 6s pro that I love, and an amazing Tz v2 Frenzy .50 all running on a modded 2.4 and 72 mhz 7202 for my old planks on 72 and my helis on 2.4. I was looking at the dorm and I don't really think I can even fit everything for my helis in there, plus I dont really have a way of securing them in my dorm. I was thinking about selling the 50 buying a case, fbl system for my 450 and a new radio (9303?) and bolting that to the bed. I was also considering selling all and buying a logo 500 (my dream heli) and sticking with my old radio. Any other suggestions? I wanna thin the fleet but still have a great heli that can bring me to finally nailing pirohurricanes. Thanks in advance!

Keep with what I have!!!!
Sell the 50 and buy a radio and fbl system for 450
Sell both and get the logo 500 keep radio
Other (please specify below)

First of all congrats for getting into your dream school

At my school, there were limited storage facilities for out of state and international students. You basically had to go through an approval process and if they determined that you really needed the extra space, they'd give it to you. I don't know about your school. But I'm sure it wont hurt to ask the housing staff there.

I was able to get a storage for my stuff since I had a lot of RC trucks back then.

Just a thought.

Regards,
G

Congratulations,
Going all electric makes sense.
Look up a local club/local heli flyers in the area.
You may find a heli friend that can offer a bit of storage/support space.

Girls would be a good idea!!!

I love my logo 500, I would go logo 600 if you could, just because its more eff, and more flight time.

Logo 500 for me is 5mins max on 6S, logo 600 I can fly 6 to 6:30 mins.

Keep the .50 with 2.4 and sell everything else to fund your Logo 500.

Keep one heli, then you'll have more time to study and bang ho's.

You will want to have a social life, possibly pursue romantic interests, and perform well in your scholastics. Having a single heli will provide the extra time and resources for these endeavours.

There is more similarity in my advice to these words than I care to admit...
Keep one heli, then you'll have more time to study and bang ho's.
Of course, even with one heli, you may not have to worry about girls. Helis are like girl kryptonite!

That said which heli?

I'd go with the Logo 500 if you can spring it moneywise and flying-space wise.

Otherwise the 450 will provide some fun, but the pirohurricane is going to be way harder to do on it.

Take the 450 first and recon the facilities. Then have a favourite bigger heli sent to you. Being ERAU I'm sure they have clubs there. Who knows, other interests and your course load may take up your time.

I'm about ready to graduate from college in May. I kept one heli with me, a 50-sized, for the 4 years I was in school. Can be difficult sometimes trying to get to a field. If I had to do it over, I'd get a 450 or 500-sized electric and fly that at intramural fields or parks in the area.

If I was you I would keep the 450, sell everything else, upgrade the 450 and buy spares for it, and a locked case where you can also keep the TX in.

Then when you leave buy a Logo 500 V-Bar .

wws2010-
First congratulations on the move and the college!
Your moving to the right state (Florida) where the flying NEVER let's off, plus the smokin' hot Florida girls (oh yeah...)
There is a great field in Daytona, Our field in Winter Garden/Orlando
(TORCHS-Home of the Orlando Helicopter Blowout) is less than an hour down I-4 and Jax field is a must fly and see..(Ask for Andy)
In closing besides school keeping you busy, you can access plenty of top notch fields down here when your schedule allows or on any given weekend buddy...
Now Suppliers-- Florida is full of the best in the business!

My vote is Ditch all of the helicopters, study hard, and chase some booty. The helicopters will still be there when you are done.

ya im graduating in December from college and ive been flying through it... i think the best one is a trex 500, i have a 600e now but i live in college apartments so i have more room than a dorm... lets face it your not gonna study that much freshman year mostly just partying... and your not going to b in classes all day everyday so i would say keep the 450 and upgrade your stuff and once you move out of the dorm get your bigger heli back... you would actually b surprised but a lot of hot chicks like helis... i think its because they see that and think your wallets big
