I was at another fly in this week, and one of the items I think needs to be added to any field tool box is plug adaptors for batteries.

Apart from the usual spare I find that a slingshot, Lead weight, fishing line and some nylon rope allow me to recover my planes from the odd tree that I did not realise would try to take a bite out of my plane.

Ohh! One more thing have a spare pair of glasses if your eyesight isn't perfect. The best tool box in the world won't help if you can't see what you are doing. Ask me how I know!:rolleyes:

Have fun!
