Has anyone done a spring stock take of their stuff?
I brought a new transmitter a few days ago and started to program it with my favourite aircraft. As storage space in the garage is at a premium I decided to retire to a couple of little used aircraft, salvaging the servos, motors etc.
I then made the fatal mistake of adding them to my spare bits draw and consequently realised that it wouldnt all fit...aggghh. So I decided to do a little audit to see exactly what Ive got. Just the value of the 'spare' motors made me wince!!
1 x Axi 2212/26
1 x Axi 2212/34
1 x Axi 2208/26
1 x Razor 400
1 x Aveox 27/26/4 (kv1172 rpm/v, 20 amp)
1 x Mega 16/15/4 + CC 25 amp
1 x Typhoon 6
1 x Typhoon 6 + 18 amp brushless
1 x Typhoon 15
1 x 400 size outrunner + 18 amp brushless
I realise some of you might have a lot more spare stuff but Ive only been 'collecting' for a little over a year! My late new years resolutions are to be more prudent and plan more effectively!!
Any thoughts about potential models to but this stuff to work?? (Am too much of a tight-fisted hoarder away to give or sell them!)
As anyone else done a similar stock take recently? If you havent, learn by my mistake - DONT do it!!!

Good advice for me, I couldn't picture myself doing an invantory here! Will my kids have a job to do if I kick the bucket. Many, many years of stuff most still good but I'll admit lots for the dumpster. I did deposit a bunch of old radio stuff (Kraft and Citizianship) about ten years ago in the dumpster and do clean up occasionally and make a new deposit but I have a shop in the loft of the barn full as well as a hanger full, thirty plus planes ready to fly at any time so for sure after years of this business (over fifty) it collects exponentally. Can I relate ?- yup , but I don't feel sorry for ya.

Only have one spare AXI 2814/12 motor and 45A controller left. I have one extra hs-81 servo as well. Everything else is in use.... Oh, four 'spare' kits to build and a big stack of balsa sheets and sticks -- but the balsa kits are going to have to 'wait' until late summer/fall I suspect due to house projects this summer...
