I put together a sample tool list of actual products I use. I also provided links in case you need to purchase them. Note these are only examples, there are many products out there, but these are some of the basics you need.

None of the links in the list are "ässociate" links. I in no way try to make money off my fellow enthusiasts. These are straight links.

And if possible buy them from your local RC shop to support them! If not there are many online stores available. Study up and decide which tools may best fit your needs. This list is intended to give a starting place of types of tools you may end up needing.
