Default Field Kit Debate

I am a new RC flyer and am going to get my field supplies, glow starter, glow plug(all that stuff), but I don't know which one would be better for me Slimline's Nitro Powerstation or Hobbico Field pack deluxe. http://www.slimlineproducts.com/onli...w_arrivals.htm http://www.shop.com/op/~Hobbico_Fiel...4?sourceid=298

The power-station looks neat. It doesn't look like it even includes the starter or the field battery! For that kind of money you should be able to put together a complete "Master Caddy" flight box with batteries fuel pump and Sullivan starter.

I'd go with the Hobbico stuff and add what else you need.

I'm in a similar position as you. Another alternative might be the Great Planes combo. It is a bit more, but comes w/ a starter also- and the starter/battery compartment detaches.

I'm debating about getting it.
