    Control line field box

    I have been flying control line for 5 years. I stick my control line stuff in my RC field box, which is getting pretty full. I would like a dedicated field box just for control line. Not really impressed with the current field boxes on the market. I want to make my own or find one more suitable for control lines flying need. Does anyone know where I can get some plans or buy a box? If you have made one could you please post a picture or two so I can get an idea of what works?

    RE: Control line field box

    They still do, and are nice. I was able to fully assemble the Field Boss without glue the first time as its so well designed.

    I am actually selling my Sig Field Boss as I decided to downsize but what do you really need to bring with you to the field? Love the Boss but due to its size I pretty much put everything I had in it and it weighed a ton.

    When I really looked at what tools I actually used at the field I was able to downsize big time.

    I modified a used Tower Hobbies flight box to my needs and am very happy with the outcome. I cut off both outside sections (hold fuel, battery and power panel) as I usea separate box that holds fuel and a starting/charging battery.

    I can post a pic if needed later...

    http://streamershuttle.blogspot.com/ Lester builds a great control line box that is small yet versatile. I've built a couple and love them. You will have to go down his blog a bit to find it.

    RE: Control line field box

    For the longest time I used a bucket, but after awhile I got tired of being called "Bucket Boy". Built a Great Planes Master Caddy. Great for RC, but heavy. I had to make a wagon to carry mine. Some people are using Rubbermaid tool boxes. You're wise to do your research.

    RE: Control line field box

    Consider two containers:

    A small one for the field with small can of fuel, fueling tool, lines, booster, and extra prop(s) with tools needed to change it.

    A larger one with repair equipment, additional fuel, and anything else you feel you need. This one usually stays in the car.
