Default Power distribution box

Forgive me for this seemingly easy question.I was down at the local carpet track tonite and o saw a few guys that had a little box with their dc powered accessories plugged into it and the power supply was giving it the juice.Where can i get one of these ??.Do i just go to radio shack??.
Probably wonder,why doesn't guru know this??.Well,i have been out of electric for 15 years.(been flying helis and planes and running 1/5 gas cars)I am gonna have more questions also,so please bear with me.Thank you,Steve

Integy sells one and so does Much More. You can make your own by buying stuff from Radio Shack though for about 15-20 bucks.

You can make one buying stuff from Radio Shack. Parts are about $15. You can buy some from Integy for around $30. Nice looking units. I made mine and actually like it. Click link below. Hope this helps.

The Integy box is the only way to go for the money.

I purchased a custom built box on RCtech and I am extremely happy with it. The low profile unit he is building now is very small and fits in the top of my pit box. I think he is still making them.

Just go to radio shack and get a small project box and some binding post. You drill holes in the box and then wire all the posts together on the inside. RC Action had an article on how to make one.
