As you get into any hobby you start collecting a few handy tools.
Servo testers are very handy for testing and programming servos.
A Watt meter is invaluable for setting up the correct prop to motor, and testing power used by the RX etc.
A decent battery checker is vital, provides cell voltage and remaining flight time of battery.
Mainly used for helicopters a digital pitch gauge gives precise readings and a digital tachometer for checking head speed.
Soldering irons, rotary cutting and grinding tools.
Heat gun, covering iron, digital scales and digital callipers.
A motor kv and rpm meter and a new smaller watt meter.
Servo tester checks servo angle, speed and a destructive life limit test!
And a well stocked tool box.
With moving on to IC engines etc I made a rig to set them up.
Adjustable front end for different sized engines and clamped to the table works great.
Handy for running in the SC46 for the Spitfire.
