Folding pit table and chair
Plastic milk crate with Jersey Modeler fuel container and various spray cans (Nitro cleaner, WD40, Corrosion-X, canned air)

Re: Post the tools & equipment you lug to the pond

I sail RC sail boats a lot. I have a 4 drawer fishing tackle kit that I take everywhere. It has a compartment in the top that nicely holds my radio and a few other things (tape measure, neck strap, etc.) and then all the screws, line, fittings and tools that it would take to do repairs at the lake.

But it is also my primary storage for all those things as well so I work out of it at home as well. That way I only have one stash of all these things so that when I head to a regatta I just take that kit with me and I am pretty sure I have what I need to survive a weekend.

Re: Post the tools & equipment you lug to the pond

Bringing stuff to the pond can be simple to outragous.

Parts for one boat is easy to manage, yet when you have a multitude of boats running different power plants it can become a big job remembering where the parts are in all of your stuff.

I use a lot of plano 3700 totes in all sizes.
Carried in plano tote bag and large duffle bag.

I due the same for all of the rc types plane, heli, car and boat parts in different bags/tool boxes for ease of transport.

I general tool box and speciality tools in respective bags. if avalable ( allan keys screwdrivers and plyers etc.)

nuts and bolts ( metric and standard )
servos
pushrods and seals.
props
cables
brass etc.
cold drinks

When you carry alot to the pond you could become a pond shop and sell parts on site , for those who travel light.
