I just recently picked up Protek R/C Shock Pliers. I do not know how I survived the past 2.5 years without shock pliers.

Very true, only caveat is I would go with a “mechanical caliper”, not a digital one. Saves you from putting a battery in every time you need it (felt this way…).It slays me how many people have $1k+ rigs and lack two basic things that make life a lot easier.
1. Temperature gun / infrared thermometer:
Want to know if your gearing is too high? Is your motor too warm? the "touch" method can only get you in the ballpark. KNOW FOR SURE! Get a temperature gun!
They are only around $15!
2. Digital Caliper:
Make checking turnbuckles and the length of screws and anything a BREEZE!
I use mine every day measuring something with my RCs... It is truly one of the best tools out there and can be had for a little as $8!

They are unfortunately more expensive than the digital ones, but tend to be all metal and sturdy.
