Default E-box, flight-box (field box) - call it what you like, tell me what you call it.....

Hey all.

I hope I don't get flamed for being at the wrong thread.....
I am looking for plans for a basic field box, that can take a charger, battery, and some tools. I really do not want to spend $40+ for something like this, when I can see it's all made out of plywood anyway.

Any ideas where I can look for some plans.

anyway - what is the correct terminology for these boxes anyway: field-box, toolbox, fly-box, e-box...or...???

Thanks
Bert

I have always called it a field box. Since the E-flight craze I have seen newer ones called E boxes. The E box is smaller and has no compartment for glow fuel. This is not fact, just what I gathered. I am sure you can find plans somewhere for one. Maybe do a search for how to build a field box. I will look too. Best of luck,
Jay

Now I remember, They used to call them field totes, or tote box. Sorry for the double post....
