    Agree. Much better idea than buying or building a shelf/stand for it.

    Stu,

    I built a cheapy shelf unit for mine. I can pick the whole thing up, put it in the back of my C-Max, plug in the one (shelf attached) power strip/USB charger, get in my car and charge everything all day long! Stop wherever I choose, open my hatchback, pull out a bird and fly. When I'm done and I get to where I'm going, unplug the single plug, pick it up, bring it inside and plug (the one plug) into the wall and I'm back in business! May not look real pretty but it works great.

    I do have a case already. I want to build a shelf where I can place everything on there and plug in my 3 battery's and remote at once. Thanks for the ideas though !!

    I can tell there was some skitzing going on one night when the kids were in bed, you were like " I know what I'm ganna do! " I love it!
    I must admit, more then half the fun is reading the forum, checking for new mods, creating flight plans in my head and overall just thinking of new ways to accessorize. Great photo, now I'm off to Home Depot to buy some shelving and a new jig saw blade to start building minelol

    Great idea for the shelf in the back of the car. Didn't see anyway to hold stuff down while in transit. I'd add a strap to help hold stuff down in case of hard braking etc.

    Stinch,

    The birds are in holes that form to the body and battery of each bird with a little pad under each motor pod. On the P2 I left the snap-on prop guard hubs (I don't use the guards) and the P3 has the strong-arm plates for added support after all of the cracking issues were discovered. The birds don't move at all.

    You can't really see it in the photos but the controllers have a bumper that they sit on so the little steel controller leg catches it. They don't move either. If I really had to do some defensive driving they might move around a bit but I can drive normally without worrying about anything moving around.

    The best part if it is that the C-Max (gas & electric) can be left on all day. The gas engine won't turn on until the hybrid battery needs to charge. So it's as if it's off until it needs to top off. While everything is charging it'll come on for maybe 5 minutes or so every few hours.

    I'm looking at shelf 2.0 now as I want to be able to do something similar with 2-P3P's and 1-3dr Solo. I haven't figured out how I'm going to do it yet.

    Jerry
