Default Case that fits Compass Stretch 550?

Hey guys,

I am wondering if I can put this heli in a case preferably with my TX and Lipos, even better if it had room for my charger lol.

I seen a very nice case for the Trex 450 it has a window too so u can see the heli from outside.

I wish there was something like that for Compass 550 Stretch, but I would settle for any case that can fit it and safely transport it from 1 place to another.

IDK if this case fits but I doubt it since it's for 500 and i stretched - http://www.commonsenserc.com/parent_...&parents_id=12

I use a golf club case for both my 500 and 600. Lots of different styles and $$

Also, I don't see the weight, but one that look similar was 60+ pounds. This is a problem for air flight (and my back).

Probably. And since I often go to the field by bike, I build one myself. Same concept as the pic's. And I use a small trailer behind the bike.

IDK about bags sure they let u carry ur stuff together, but it's not much protection when the heli is being thrown into the back of ur SUV and your friend's case is sitting on your tail rotor or something.

I would hate to arrive at the flying site only to found out I broke something in transit.
