What’s on your Holiday Shopping List?

Nov 04, 2011 No Comments by

I am seeing those holiday commercials so it must mean we are approaching the season of giving.  I hope you will join in here and provide some of the items you think should be a part of every RC hobbyist’s wish list.  Let me start by making a few suggestion of items I use all the time.

  • JIS Type screwdriver.  This head fits those metric screws that cam out with your standard phillips head screwdriver – $10
  • A Great Planes CG Machine – Just have to have this
  • A 24×36 builders mat – This is durable, and you can cut material easily across the surface – They also have rulers and a grid $20
  • A Balancing Charger for your LiPo’s – Lots to chose from
  • The Jigs Up Soldering tool – This holds your Deans plugs and pins while you solder $22
  • 100 Excel blades – $15
  • Great Planes Accuthrow Deflection Meter – $10
  • LiPo Locker – Safety for your LiPo charging – $50
  • Hansen Hobbies Memory Chip for your Futaba 9 Cap Super – $35
  • Eagle Tree Systems Altimeter – $38
  • Flyzone Micro Cub – RTF Complete $79
  • Z Bend pliers – $15
  • Cordless Dremel Tool – $20 – $40
  • T-pins – Just have to have them too – $4
  • 10-32 drill and tap set $8
  • RC Accessory Final Cahrge Cable – $16

Hey, these are just my idea.  Feel free to post your won so others get some great ideas.
