I use a F-150 (white) and just put it in the front seat. I can get you a picture if you want.

Here's the video about how to modify your box for transport, and how to make it last with some tape and such.

hmm I guess I should have been more specific.
Thank you very much for your advice, I will go to the LHS today and ask for a F-150 (white) that comes with a front seat. I hope fuse doesn't get bent

Sorry about that. I forgot to add the smiley face indicating it was just humor.

I used the box it came in. Taped the ends so the foam bed stays in and cut the glue joint so it opens like a suit case. Been using some straps to keep it closed. Velcro would be better. Also put a handle on it so it carries like a suit case too. Did pretty much the same thing to my DX7 box except it's only the foam with packing tape and velcro keepers to keep it closed. The price it right. Would like nicer cases but this will do for now.

so then you untape the horizontal fin everytime? I have modded my box by cutting it and adding two smaller boxes, one on each side where the horizontal stab goes into. It makes it look like a space ship!

Got the stab magnet mod on this one. Slip it in and capture the push rod with another mod I did. Takes about 5 seconds to do both and no tape.

I just use the original box to carry the lot. I retape the tailplane each time with white electrical tape, about 50mm top and bottom each side. I've soldered a metal clevis for the elevator pushrod so the trim stays the same and is more secure than the dinky little screw type. Takes a couple of minutes only to rig and derig. The tape leaves no residue. In fact, I forgot to tape the lower surface on one occasion with no ill effect. My bad. Did not do a proper DI before flight
