The Chroma I'd take $900, it has 2 batteries, spare props and the high current charge leads. It's the 4K RTF version with the video screen in the transmitter. The QX2 I'd go $150 with 3 batteries and a ton of extra props. That one is bind and fly.

Those are Canadian dollar prices, so about 680 and 113 USD according to xe.com.

@F106DeltaDart, looking at your list it seems you have more there than in that vast closet collection you showed a few months back. Yes? Are you keeping more than you're showing. My real curiosity is how could you possibly store them all.
Yeah, I've expanded a bit since then. Pretty much exhausted every storable space in my apartment. The F-106 and T-33 will get a spot on the rack once I finish building them.

Yowza! The old photo had a lot of aircraft. This is just... whatever it is I think you win.

With all that aircraft, do you have anything to track what is flyable and what needs work and what parts are needed? Maybe you could open an RC air museum when you retire.

Thanks Stefan, glad to share! The thing I can never get away from, is that when I get stuck or pause on a project, I generally start another project:rolleyes:. Tends to cause the project queue to grow exponentially.. That said, I'm already eyeing up a Tigercat for my next addition. Also, I know TJ mentioned scale helis on the last podcast, if you guys ever stop by in TX, you are welcome to try out a scale a heli! They are a rarity, but are just fun and relaxing to fly! Keep up the awesome work Stefan, and I'm looking forward to the podcast tomorrow.

Yeah, I keep a document on my iPad that lists each model, its status, and work needed. For some of the more intense projects, I track their progress in their own separate documents. As for the museum, someday, hopefully they'll be hanging in hangar above a full sized plane or helicopter.. I can dream right? :D

I do a very similar thing with an app called "ToDoist" that lets me keep all my lists of planes, quads, projects, repairs, notes, etc. in a format that's accessible from my phone or computer. Really helps make sure I make all the fixes to a plane before taking it back out to the field.

Hmm, might need to look into that. I just keep an open document in notes at the moment. Thanks for the info!

I bought a cheap white board for my workshop where I have all my aircrafts listed along with work they might need and last flown date. I was thinking if I was doing that with my small number then you with the equivalent of several squadrons must certainly have something in place.

What you guys don't have the mock ups of your houses and immediate areas where you move around the miniatures like they do for the flight deck and hangar bays on an aircraft carrier? You guys are slackin.
