Small engines for small airplanes, so a small field box or tote box is the way to go. Build this out of 5mm ply with a 40mm drawer that can keep inside all accessories our little models need.

Ha! crash is not an option! To be honest I am better builder than flyer but since you mention it I'm gonna add some glue in there.

Hey, that's really cute!

Any chance you can publish plans or a 3-view with rulers in the pics? Is the red thing an electric starter?

Thanks in advance.

Sure, you can also adjust dimensions by your needs. Drawer has 2mm plastic bottom, ply is 5mm nailed and then i pass the joints with cyano. A coat of clear varnish for fuel proofing and plastic details are 3D printed.
Yes the red thing is a starter i design (a work in progress).

Thank you guys I am glad you like it. Well the starter is 3d printed that I designed and uses a 540 motor, a 2S 1100 lipo and a button switch. I am thinking to sell the case only minus the internals but I just have to figure out the price which will include signed of shipping cost from Greece to anywhere in the world but I want to keep price as low as possible, so there are a few things I have to calculate.
