I could tell. It has the rather distinct blue and yellow colours.

Yeah, I know its yellow and blue.. but mine is (from CT last year) blue and grey ... and there's a black and decker one which is identical and it's black and orange (Rona/Revy)...I think Home Depot had them for awhile too

I have tried so many things for a field box but no matter what I put in it, what I actually needed was not in there when I needed it...if you know what I mean...LOL

Now I just carry a box with the very basics. Battery, starter, fuel and pump, Ni-starter ( glow starter ) Chicken stick, glow plugs and plug wrench,,,and thats it. I carry a larger tool box in my van with all the tools, and other equipment that I may need at the field in an emergency! Especially when going out of town to a competition, funfly or rally, I throw in other goodies like a spare receiver, extra servos, extra battery pack(s) even a backup Tx and when I travelled all the way up to Sudbury the past summer, I even carried a spare engine! All this stuff stays in the van if/when needed. Its usually easier working behind the van in a breakdown anyway rather in the pitts where so much is happening. Works for me and I do not have to lug a heavy tool box around and keep watch over it all day!!

How often really do you have a serious problem that you want to spend hours fixing at the field anyway when the home workbench is so much easier? ( Again, unless your out of town, miles away from home ) During the trip to Sudbury, we had a plane with 4 of us working on it in the motel room in the evening.
