SHEET FOAM PROTECTS PARTS
Sheets of craft foam are perfect for padding body posts, battery
compartments, and receiver boxes. Using scissors, trim the sheet to
fit or use a hole punch to fit pads over body posts. Glue two or more
pieces together for increased cushioning. You can also use the foam
to pad any spots inside the body that contact the chassis.
TRANSMITTER BAG ON THE CHEAP
A padded fabric lunch bag can double as a transmitter bag. Most have a pocket for an
icepack that can be used for spare AA batteries or an extra receiver. Bonus: you can also use
the bag to carry lunch.
Loose body clips have a way of migrating out of toolboxes and o;
bench tops. A spare body post (or a scrap cut from an extra-long
post) makes a great body-clip wrangler. Slip extra clips into the holes
then toss it into your spares box.
BLADE BLOCKER Lost the cap to your hobby knife? You could do the old stick- the-blade-in-backwards trick, but that still leaves an exposed cutting edge. Instead, push the blade into a piece of firm foam from packaging or a spare battery spacer. Instant cap!
