Bad, bad news today!


So i just got back from my deployment from Afghanistan 2days ago. Ive been super happy to be back in america, and I've been looking forward to start building my quadcopter and fpv stuff swell as flying all of my old helps and planes! Well today we went to the storage unit that had my stuff in it that i stored since i deployed. So I'm loading stuff into my jeep to bring back to our new apartment,and i was talking to my wife and i said hey where's my 2 $350 bicycles, my rc planes, batteries, spectrum dx7, and my craftsman tool set. she says I have something to tell you I'm like oh freaking great what now. she's like i think someone broke into our storage unit. I'm like wt so after packing my jeep with stuff my wife and i go talk to the manager and guess what sure enough our unit along with 7 other peoples got broken into back in august he gave us a police report number. so tomorrow i have to call my insurance company and see if i can get any money back from the stuff that got stolen. what a great way to be welcomed back to america! makes me really feel great about deploying for my country knowing the people me and so many fight for is back here stealing our stuff! now i have to order a new controller just to be able to fly my new quadcopter and other helps and planes that didnt get stolen. so I'm debating on what controller i should get now since I'm pretty much starting over again. should i get a spectrum dx8 or JR x8?
also I'm putting a whole bunch of stuff up for sale since i can't fly anything because i either don't have the plane anymore or i just don't I've outgrown some of the stuff and probably won't fly it anymore. so please give me some info and chck the classifieds ill have a lot of stuff up for sale.

You could save some $$ and get a turnigy 9X w/spektrum DM9 module if they didn't steal all your receivers and/or you want to stick to spektrum tech

Sorry to hear about your loss

timecop has the right idea with the Turnigy 9x. I had a 400$ 10c that I never used since I now prefer the 60$ Eurgle/Turnigy.

One of the reasons I prefer my Eurgle 9x is that if someone steals it or if I drop and damage it, it's cheep enough to just buy another one.

Welcome back and don't forget to mention the Picasso you had in there also.
