Being the newbie I am, I had a heck of a time collecting all of the parts necessary to build and fly these airplanes. I feel that this is a major problem for the industry and here is my solution, the "Flite Test" Builder's Box prototype. FYI, Flite Test is in no way associated with this product prototype. Maybe one day, fingers are crossed, but at this point there is no affiliation between us. I am only using their name merely as a product example. Now, if you guys feel that this would be a good product please let me know by leaving me a comment. Also, please let me know if there is anything else that you would put in this product. My hope is that this product would reduce the amount of time spent reading a computer screen trying to figure out which products we need and increase time spent outside flying. Anything that increases flying time is good.
Here is the actual box. It comes with a large top area for large items and a shelving system that holds four individual boxes.
Here is what the large compartment on the top looks like. This is where you would store large tools such as a glue gun, screw drivers, allen wrenches, pliers, cutting dikes, straight edges (ruler), soldering iron, alligator clips, second set of hands tool, clamps, etc. The toy car mat in the background will not be included, unless of course you specifically request it.
I have the first tray in the rack system setup this way. Beginning at the top left we have prop savers, motors, motor mounts, props, linkage stoppers, servos, esc, 3.5mm bullet connectors, xt60 connectors, battery charger with cables, and batteries.
The second tray is setup this way; razor blade, exacto knife, second set of hands tool, Velcro, shrink tubing, electrical tape, soldering iron, and alligator clips.
Tray number 3 has three different sizes of zip ties, push rods, hot glue sticks, rubber bands, popsicle sticks, bbq squires, and rudder and aileron throw gages.
Tray 4 has not been customized. Let me know what you would like to see in box four.
Alright guys, that about raps it up. Please let me know if you would be interested in purchasing a product like this.
