started saving.....
« on: April 29, 2017, 19:45:40 »
A few weeks back i started a savings tin, with no purpose in mind, i have been putting only silver and new pound coins in, i now have a purpose for this, i plan to keep at it till this time next year or when its full whatever comes sooner, the plan is to get the Horizon blade Opterra 2 meter wing and fit it out with full FPV and something that might do waypoints, maybe mini APM, this will only happen if my fixed wing flying improves a lot  :embarrassed

I do want the Opterra, but its ruddy huge, so that may put me of in the end, if i dont get the big wing i will still save and may end up building a big Hexacopter

I am hoping to have around £200 in the tin when i rip it open, i guess i will have changed my mind a dozen times over about what flying project to put it into  :laugh:

I did a calculation to work out what the tin may hold (gives incentive to keep at it) by my thinking it should hold £400 ish so coupled with annual bonus from work i should have a substantial pot for next years big project

Nice but i think it will have sold by time i am ready, plus i still dont know what i am saving for, i want the opterra but its huge and easy to trash, and i fancy the Quanum 690 pro umbrella folding hex, but thats over £200 just for frame kit.
I will just keep stashing money till i am ready, but dont plan on buying any more multirotor?wing stuff this year, more a case of selling what i dont use and putting more into the savings, still need to decide if i am putting my S550 hex back together and use it or just sell it, just needs the new Naza finished putting in, might do that at weekend

The cash is mounting up nicely  :cool:        and still dont have a ruddy clue what i will use it for, found myself thinking a nice used Phantom 4 might be a nice idea (sell the p3s to help fund)
lets have some suggestions as to what i can get
