Default Flight Box?

I am not sure where to post this question but here it is. I have been flying r/c planes for a while now and my Flight Box has had it. My question is does anyone know where I can get another? I want to replace the one I have which folds up nicely in a box and has a thick dowel to carry it by. I think when I bought it the advertisement was colored red white and blue. Any help would be appreciated. Also If I can't get it, is there a good substitute?

Thanks again,
SVX

Hi SVX,

If you check out WWW.Greatplanes.com they have a good one. I think it comes in kit form.
But it is a real beaut.

Regards,

Sidekick.

I know the one you're talking about. One of my flying mates from the Brigham City club had one.

I don't recall who kitted it, but it hasn't been available for quite some time now.

As for good ones currently available - Sig's 'Field Boss' box seems to be well liked. Sidewalk Flyers makes one - the Flight Line Chief - it was reviewed in the RCU Magazine a couple of months ago. Nicely kitted, lots of storage, etc.

I really like my PlanePals 'Osprey' box. We don't have any workbenches at our field (yet), so it works really well for me.

Finished staining and sealing the wood, loaded up and ready to go.


At the field.

Thanks for everyones responses, I have looked at all of them and have narrowed it to two, the Sig and the Osprey. But I can't seem to find a web site for the Osprey. Is there one?
