Prop bag? or prop storage?

After about 2 years of my boy and I flying plankers I seem to have bought a ton of various props. What is everyone using to store extra props. I seem to use Hobbytown bags mostly but even now those bags are getting ripped every time I get it out.

Anyone got any storage ideas for props. I mostly fly anything from 5x5 to 20x10 Just looking for a better idea that won't rip apart. Not too concerned about Gas/electric sorting just a better way to transport without spillage.

I use a coffee can.

I did notice that Xoar has prop bags for sale on Tower's site though.

I find stray props all over the house, garage, in my car. I can't seem to get a handle on prop storage. I tried a drawer in the garage, but that didn't last until the water got hot. I'm gonna watch this thread for a good solution.

Good luck.

I use a plastic toolbox something like this, http://www.shopwiki.com/_Ace%C2%AE-P...08461&s=213616 and laterly I have been using some plastic zip top bags to spilt the sizes up, saves looking through all the props for a certain size, so far it is working ok, I am using the ziptop bags HobbyKing sent certain parts in.

Tackle box. Keeps em sorted, transportable and they don't get nicked. Also a handy place to keep prop adapters, reamers, spinners, collets and other random prop related stuff.

Sorry, my mistake. You're correct.

Heh I got a lot of three bladed props, makes things even harder.

BUT I bought a huge three blader from Master airscrew some time ago and it came in a box that is basically a med size pizza box. I just use that now to store all my props in got 30-40 of them in there now, up to 20 inches.

I use a fishing tackle box. A bit like this.


Car boot sale bargain for 50p.

The folding trays store prop adaptors, reamers, balancer, spanners, allen keys and smaller props. The large compartment stores the larger props, grouped in plastic bags by size and rubber banded together. Over 100 props in the box and it usually stays in the car at the flying field.

The thread isn't for spamming props for sale, it's looking for ideas on prop storage.

Do you have any ideas on prop storage?

LeccyFlyer's tackle box is what I generally use. On the field, however, I bring along several props in a ziploc bag.
