Now that I have the hard case for my Logo 200 I can finally combine flying and riding !! 🙂

It would be great to take a 550 size but that’s just not practical. Or has one of you come up with a way?

You should rather have bought the OMP M2 foam box - much cheaper and the Logo 200 would have fitted into it perfectly

Nice bike btw - I have done a lot of touring in Africa on the GS.

Andy's case fits the VControl, batteries and even some spare parts. The Logo ships in that exact same OMP foam box, but there's no way to carry the TX.

I’ve got the foam case but as mentioned that logo case contains my tx, 5 batteries, my charger ,and a couple of spares 🙂 .

Thanks the bike is a great machine, I’ve been all over Europe on it, solid engine and nice gadgets 🙂 I do fancy trying the GS though.

I know - just a bit of tongue in cheek banter

The GS is a great bike(as is the RS) - I started with the original 1150GS. No worries with dirt roads or for going off the beaten track. It is quite heavy though so 'off road' riding requires a bit of care and common sense! Corners like a dream on the open road.

I'm sure someone in the far east has carried a 550, or bigger, on some kind of motorised two-wheel vehicle.

I have carried 700s on my pedal bike using a heli bag, so I just hold it in my left hand, with a strap over my shoulder, a bit like carrying a jousting lance.

I can carry a 500 in my backpack with the tail sticking out the top, but anything much bigger would probably be in danger of snagging a low tree branch or something.

Why not get a trailer? Or build a custom one to fit your exact requirements.

Still touring over there...got a YT channel of it? Been watching about every episode of "Itchy Boots" if you have heard of her, a WHOLE different outlook of what I have ever thought of Africa

Ok, back on topic, sort of..... I think it is 'Cyclo' on here that showed a pretty cool outfit that he takes to a nearby park, but his is pedal-power instead of twist grip......

I did this a while back for my 360 to put on the back of my v-strom. Never got around to actually using it for that before I sold the bike so I do not know how it would work. I would think you could do the same for a 550 size, just might hang off the back a bit and be a bit heavy. https://www.helifreak.com/showthread...ght=reddeffern

Nice bike, I have the same but the R version, not the RS.

I have taken up to a 380 size heli, Tx and packs in a backpack on my bike with no issues. The tail sticks out the top of the bag but it works ok. My scooter was even better, had room under the seat and a boot where I could get the Blade 180 into.

My friend has an R3 and has taken a 550 heli along with some smaller helis, Tx, packs, etc and uses an instrument backpack to fit it all. He said it does pull on his shoulders a bit when at speed as the tail part of the bag sticks up over his head, but it has been working well for him.

Put a chair on it and then you can carry a huge amount of kit!

If you can find a used "helibag 500"or 600 you'll do it easily.
I have both and use them every week. I even carry a fold up chair, table, coffee thermos, and 1-2 6s 22,000 lipo to charge off etc
Feel free to send me a pm with any questions. I have different bags depending what i'm carrying.
For the logo 200, a normal backpack is fine. I find the soft vcontrol case to offer best protection in my bags.
I set up a torvol backpack to use with my micros.
It's very doable. But with strong winds a bit less fun. But my ride is about 30 miles to the field and mostly highway at about 70m/hr.

This thread inspired me to try something...



Success! At least until I leave the driveway and break 10 mph and they all fall off





Not only would I lose all my helis on the way to a fun fly, I would probably get lost and never make it anyway because my Oxy is taking up my phone holder.

Done the exact same thing myself on a GSXR.

Slip the skids under the strap and zip tied down to the seat. Cut zip ties and re do when leaving the field. I carried 24v power supply, PL6, and Tx in a backpack.

Not done with a 550 though, only stretch Protos 500 (480 blades). That and my current bike passenger seat isn't very friendly to taking on and off. Maybe should try with the Logo though....
