Default Flight Boxes

Hi Guys

I kind of hijacked this post from RC Canada , the reason is I am planning on building a new flight box.
Can anyone share any info or pics of their flight boxes
I need to carry everything in one box ie scuba tank, fire ext. , battery . etc... etc.

SOW US YOUR FLIGHT BOXES !!!

Thanks guys

Ted

i just use a big multipurpise toolbox i got at home depot ... its stackable, rolls, and has several compartments ... i keep my chargers, cables, tools, etc in it ... for the fuel jugs, extinguishers, etc i have a rollinig gardening cart which i have used sometimes .. problem we have is that a lot of our support equipment can be on the "bulky" side ...

Does anyone remember the AMT(USA) "Eliminator" ?
I believe someone here had one, and his friends (Wojtek maybe) were less than kind to him.

the eliminator is a neat set up for the air start stuff, but a lor of guys were building their own set up's as well... by the way, i have ran my at450, and thus far am happy with it ... it will soon fly in a mb339, and if continues to do so will end up powering the Firebird ( currently on a P180 )

Vinny,

Do you mean this one with the 5 swivel out drawers ?
I purchased it a few weeks ago. They sell like hot cakes, was lucky to get one.

Oh YES ! JMP Firebird, one of my favourites. I've seen one flown with extreme prejudice, getting on for 300mph I'm sure. Very intimidating.

With all the gear you plan to lug in one flight box you will need a forklift to unload it from your vehicle and a pony to drag it! Maybe go with a fold up trolley & modify it to suit your needs, would the supermarket miss one! - John.

Here is my version of a starter box on wheels. I only need a telescoping handle from a suitcase. The starter box has a 12V. tractor battery in the bottom. The upper half hinges so you can remove the battery. I can use it to start prop, ducted fan and turbines. Charge batteries, glow plug power, power fueler, defueler, glow, gas, Kerosene and it holds the propane bottle at the top. I use a hand wand starter to start the turbines. I'm sure you could make provisions for a scuba tank. The overall size is 8 1/2"w x 9"d x 24"h.
