Goldberg's Mini Hold'em Small Model Cradle Review Goldberg's Mini Hold'em Small Model Cradle Review
By RichN
Rich Noon explores this small model sized cradle, and finds, "It's small enough to leave assembled near the workbench and to add to your field equipment. It is very handy for assembly, changing batteries or any other work needed at the field or in the shop. With it's very versatile adjustment range, it provides a secure stand for many different types and sizes of airplanes. After using the Mini Hold'em a bit I can't imagine working on smaller airplanes without it."

Goldberg's ElectroTote Review Goldberg's ElectroTote Review
By RichN
Rich Noon explores this electric-specific tool tote and finds, "Goldberg has produced a great dedicated field box for the electric flyer! Lots of storage and well thought-out design makes it great for anyone flying electrics. It combines easy assembly with excellent quality wood and components. The addition of their new "Quik Chill" makes it even better! Weighing just around 8 pounds empty, it won't break your back to haul around either. All this adds up to a great field box you won't mind actually taking to the field."
