I keep my spare parts in boxes now. I have spare servos (when you get your cyclic servos order 4 because when one strips you will end up replacing all 3 if you cannot get the exact same one to replace it).

Also, keep 5-10 flybars in stock. I bend them during transportation to a flying site or back home sometimes since I don't have a carrying case for all of my 450 helis.

QC on the cheap main shafts is pretty bad. Expect some to be slightly bent.

Not only 2 short 1.5mm hex drivers but also a long one.

A magnetic parts tray for holding those tiny screws and washers.

A couple of drive belts. They stretch and have to be replaced eventually.

A spare set of tail blades in case of a tail strike on the pavement. I have hit little pebbles while landing in the grass or on cement sidewalks with pebbles in the concrete.
